Hello,  I've just released gnutls 3.1.17. This release prioritizes the
GCM ciphersuites over CBC, enables TPM support and fixes few other bugs 
on the current stable branch.

* Version 3.1.17 (released 2013-11-23)

** libgnutls: Support for TPM via trousers is now enabled by default.

** libgnutls: GCM mode is prioritized over CBC in all of the default
priority strings.

** libgnutls: Added support for ISO OID for RSA-SHA1 signatures.

** libgnutls: When traversing PKCS #11 tokens looking for an object,
avoid looking in unrelated to the object tokens.

** libgnutls: Fixed bug in gnutls_x509_crt_set_dn() at DN parsing.

** libgnutls: gnutls_x509_crt_set_expiration_time() will set the no
well defined expiration date when (time_t)-1 is specified as date.

** libgnutls: Backported memory leak fix when a handshake is terminated
by an EOF.

** libgnutls: Forbid all compression methods in DTLS.

** gnutls-serv: Fixed issue with IPv6 address in UDP mode.

** certtool: When exporting an encrypted PEM private key do not output
the key parameters.

** certtool: Expiration days template option allows for a -1 value
which will set to the no well defined expiration date (RFC5280), and no
longer chokes on integer overflows. Suggested by Stefan Buehler.

** tools: The environment variable GNUTLS_PIN can be used to read any
PIN requested from tokens.

** tools: The installed version of libopts is used if the autogen tool
is present.

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