 I've just released gnutls 3.3.10 and the security advisory
This release contains bug-fixes release for the stable branch. 

* Version 3.3.10 (released 2014-11-10)

** libgnutls: Refuse to import v1 or v2 certificates that contain

** libgnutls: Fixes in usage of PKCS #11 token callback

** libgnutls: Fixed bug in gnutls_x509_trust_list_get_issuer() when used
with a PKCS #11 trust module and without the GNUTLS_TL_GET_COPY flag.
Reported by David Woodhouse.

** libgnutls: Removed superfluous random generator refresh on every call
of gnutls_deinit(). That reduces load and usage of /dev/urandom.

** libgnutls: Corrected issue in export of ECC parameters to X9.63 format.
Reported by Sean Burford [GNUTLS-SA-2014-5].

** libgnutls: When gnutls_global_init() is called for a second time, it
will check whether the /dev/urandom fd kept is still open and matches
the original one. That behavior works around issues with servers that
close all file descriptors.

** libgnutls: Corrected behavior with PKCS #11 objects that are marked

** certtool: The default cipher for PKCS #12 structures is 3des-pkcs12.
That option is more compatible than AES or RC4.

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