This is to announce guile-gnutls-3.7.13, a beta release.

A bunch of new APIs have been added in this release, and this is a beta
release with primary focus to get review on the APIs, please tell us
what you think!  We are aware of self-test issue on Mac (help us
investigate at <https://gitlab.com/gnutls/guile/-/issues/13>) but it
helps to get this released to have people look at the rest.

The release is available here:


There have been 45 commits by 4 people in the 10 weeks since 3.7.12.

See the NEWS below for a brief summary.

Thanks to everyone who has contributed!
The following people contributed changes to this release:

  David Thompson (23)
  Jan (janneke) Nieuwenhuizen (1)

 [on behalf of the guile-gnutls maintainers]

Here is the guile-gnutls home page:

For a summary of changes and contributors, see:
or run this command from a git-cloned guile-gnutls directory:
  git shortlog v3.7.12..v3.7.13

Here are the compressed sources and a GPG detached signature:

Use a mirror for higher download bandwidth:

Here are the SHA1 and SHA256 checksums:

  4db052712884bc57dc95660acc4cbd4ccc610497  guile-gnutls-3.7.13.tar.gz
  moVW1pESOnXouGsQW8SLEVM3oKlDVfzQhsvkOMyAFRA=  guile-gnutls-3.7.13.tar.gz

Verify the base64 SHA256 checksum with cksum -a sha256 --check
from coreutils-9.2 or OpenBSD's cksum since 2007.

Use a .sig file to verify that the corresponding file (without the
.sig suffix) is intact.  First, be sure to download both the .sig file
and the corresponding tarball.  Then, run a command like this:

  gpg --verify guile-gnutls-3.7.13.tar.gz.sig

The signature should match the fingerprint of the following key:

  pub   ed25519 2019-03-20 [SC]
        B1D2 BD13 75BE CB78 4CF4  F8C4 D73C F638 C53C 06BE
  uid   Simon Josefsson <simon at josefsson.org>

If that command fails because you don't have the required public key,
or that public key has expired, try the following commands to retrieve
or refresh it, and then rerun the 'gpg --verify' command.

  gpg --locate-external-key simon at josefsson.org

  gpg --recv-keys 51722B08FE4745A2

  wget -q -O- 'https://savannah.gnu.org/project/release-gpgkeys.php?group=guile-gnutls&download=1' | gpg --import -

As a last resort to find the key, you can try the official GNU

  wget -q https://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/gnu-keyring.gpg
  gpg --keyring gnu-keyring.gpg --verify guile-gnutls-3.7.13.tar.gz.sig

This release was bootstrapped with the following tools:
  Autoconf 2.71
  Automake 1.16.5
  Makeinfo 6.8
