 I've just released gnutls 3.1.5. This release adds support for UCS2
encoded DNs, improvements in smart card key generation and few bug-fixes.

* Version 3.1.5 (released 2012-11-24)

** libgnutls: Added functions to parse the certificates policies

** libgnutls: Handle BMPString (UCS-2) encoding in the Distinguished
Name by translating it to UTF-8 (works on windows or systems with  iconv).

** libgnutls: Added PKCS #11 key generation function that returns the
public key on generation.

** libgnutls: Corrected bug in priority string parsing, that mostly
affected combined levels. Patch by Tim Kosse.

** certtool: The --pubkey-info option can be combined with the
--load-privkey or --load-request to print the corresponding public keys.

** certtool: It is able to set certificate policies via a template.

** certtool: Added --hex-numbers option which prints big numbers in an
easier to parse format.

** p11tool: After key generation, outputs the public key (useful in
tokens that do not store the public key).

** danetool: It is being built even without libgnutls-dane (the --check
functionality is disabled though).

** API and ABI modifications:
gnutls_pkcs11_privkey_generate2: Added
gnutls_x509_crt_get_policy: Added
gnutls_x509_crt_set_policy: Added
gnutls_x509_policy_release: Added
gnutls_pubkey_import_x509_crq: Added
gnutls_pubkey_print: Added
