We have just released gnutls-3.8.5. This is a bug fix and enhancement 
release on the 3.8.x branch.

We would like to thank everyone who contributed in this release:
Alyssa Ross, Daiki Ueno and Zoltan Fridrich

The detailed list of changes follows:

* Version 3.8.5 (released 2024-04-04)

** libgnutls: Due to majority of usages and implementations of RSA 
decryption with PKCS#1 v1.5 padding being incorrect, leaving them 
vulnerable to Marvin attack, the RSAES-PKCS1-v1_5 is being deprecated 
(encryption and decryption) and will be disabled in the future. A new 
option `allow-rsa-pkcs1-encrypt` has been added into the system-wide 
library configuration which allows to enable/disable the 
RSAES-PKCS1-v1_5. Currently, the RSAES-PKCS1-v1_5 is enabled by default.

** libgnutls: Added support for RIPEMD160 and PBES1-DES-SHA1 for 
backward compatibility with GCR.

** libgnutls: A couple of memory related issues have been fixed in RSA 
PKCS#1 v1.5 decryption error handling and deterministic ECDSA with 
earlier versions of GMP. These were a regression introduced in the 3.8.4 
release. See #1535 and !1827.

** build: Fixed a bug where building gnutls statically failed due to a 
duplicate definition of nettle_rsa_compute_root_tr().

** API and ABI modifications:
GNUTLS_PKCS_PBES1_DES_SHA1: New enum member of gnutls_pkcs_encrypt_flags_t
