 I've just released gnutls 3.3.9. This is a bug-fix release on
the stable branch. With this release the 3.3.x branch becomes the stable

* Version 3.3.9 (released 2014-10-13)

** libgnutls: Fixes in the transparent import of PKCS #11 certificates.
Reported by Joseph Peruski.

** libgnutls: Fixed issue with unexpected non-fatal errors resetting the
handshake's hash buffer, in applications using the heartbeat extension
or DTLS. Reported by Joeri de Ruiter.

** libgnutls: When both a trust module and additional CAs are present 
account the latter as well; reported by David Woodhouse.

** libgnutls: added GNUTLS_TL_GET_COPY flag for
gnutls_x509_trust_list_get_issuer(). That allows the function to be used
in a thread safe way when PKCS #11 trust modules are in use.

** libgnutls: fix issue in DTLS retransmission when session tickets
were in use; reported by Manuel Pégourié-Gonnard.

** libgnutls-dane: Do not require the CA on a ca match to be direct CA.

** libgnutls: Prevent abort() in library if getrusage() fails. Try to
detect instead which of RUSAGE_THREAD and RUSAGE_SELF would work.

** guile: new 'set-session-server-name!' procedure; see the manual for

** certtool: The authority key identifier will be set in a certificate only
if the CA's subject key identifier is set.

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