 I've just released gnutls 3.1.8. This is bug fix release on the current
stable branch. GnuTLS 3.1.7 inadvertently increased the security level
of the priority string NORMAL. This release restores it to the levels of
GnuTLS 3.1.6.

* Version 3.1.8 (released 2013-02-10)

** libgnutls: Fixed issue in gnutls_x509_privkey_import2() which didn't
return GNUTLS_E_DECRYPTION_FAILED in all cases, and affect certtool
operation with encrypted keys. Reported by Yan Fiz.

** libgnutls: The minimum DH bits accepted by priorities NORMAL and
PERFORMANCE was set to previous defaults 727 bits. Reported by Diego
Elio Petteno.

** libgnutls: Corrected issue which prevented
gnutls_pubkey_verify_hash() to operate with long keys. Reported by Erik
A Jensen.

** API and ABI modifications:
No changes since last version.
