 I've just released gnutls 3.4.16. This is a bug fix release of the
current stable branch.

* Version 3.4.16 (released 2016-10-09)

** 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).

** guile: Backported all improvements from 3.5.x branch.

** 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:
No changes since last version.
