 I've just released gnutls 3.5.5. This is an enhancements and
bugfix release for the 3.5.x branch.

* Version 3.5.5 (released 2016-10-09)

** libgnutls: enhanced gnutls_certificate_set_ocsp_status_request_file()
   to allow importing multiple OCSP request files, one for each chain

** libgnutls: The gnutls_certificate_set_key* functions return an
   index of the added chain. That index can be used either with
   gnutls_certificate_set_ocsp_status_request_file(), or with
   gnutls_certificate_get_crt_raw() and friends.

** libgnutls: Added SHA*, AES-GCM, AES-CCM and AES-CBC optimized implementations
   for the aarch64 architecture. Uses Andy Polyakov's assembly code.

** libgnutls: Ensure proper cleanups on gnutls_certificate_set_*key()
   failures due to key mismatch. This prevents leaks or double freeing
   on such failures.

** libgnutls: Increased the maximum size of the handshake message hash.
   This will allow the library to cope better with larger packets, as
   the ones offered by current TLS 1.3 drafts.

** libgnutls: Allow to use client certificates despite them containing
   disallowed algorithms for a session. That allows for example a client
   to use DSA-SHA1 due to his old DSA certificate, without requiring him
   to enable DSA-SHA1 (and thus make it acceptable for the server's certificate).

** libgnutls: Reverted AESNI code on x86 to earlier version as the
   latest version was creating position depending code. Added checks
   in the CI to detect position depending code early.

** guile: Update code to the I/O port API of Guile >= 2.1.4
   This makes sure the GnuTLS bindings will work with the forthcoming 2.2
   stable series of Guile, of which 2.1 is a preview.

** API and ABI modifications:
gnutls_certificate_set_ocsp_status_request_function2: Added
gnutls_session_ext_register: Added
gnutls_session_supplemental_register: Added
