 I've just released gnutls 3.4.6. This version fixes bugs and adds
minor features to the next stable branch.

* Version 3.4.6 (released 2015-10-20)

** libgnutls: Added new simple verification functions. That avoids the
   need to install a callback to perform certificate verification. See
   doc/examples/ex-client-x509.c for usage.

** libgnutls: Introduced the security parameter 'future' which is at
   the 256-bit level of security, and 'ultra' was aligned to its 
   documented size at 192-bits.

** libgnutls: When writing a certificate into a PKCS #11 token, ensure
   that CKA_SERIAL_NUMBER and CKA_ISSUER are written. Reported by Sumit

** libgnutls: Allow the presence of legacy ciphers and key exchanges in
   priority strings and consider them a no-op.

** libgnutls: Handle the extended master secret as a mandatory 
   extension. That fixes incompatibility issues with Chromium (#45). 
   Reported by Hubert Kario.

** libgnutls: Added the ability to copy a public key into a PKCS #11

** tools: Added support for LDAP and XMPP negotiation for STARTTLS.

** p11tool: Allow writing a public key into a PKCS #11 token.

** certtool: Key generation security level was switched to HIGH. That
   is, by default the tool generates 3072 bit keys for RSA and DSA.

** API and ABI modifications:
gnutls_session_set_verify_function: Added
gnutls_session_set_verify_cert: Added
gnutls_session_set_verify_cert2: Added
gnutls_session_get_verify_cert_status: Added
gnutls_pkcs11_copy_pubkey: Added
