 I've just released gnutls 3.0.4. It includes several bug fixes
and adds new features to the latest stable branch. Moreover since this
version the printed manual (see ) is no longer
used as a donation method, and is available at the printing cost.

The changelog since 3.0.3 follows.

* Version 3.0.4 (released 2011-10-15)

** gnutls-cli-debug: Added more tests including AES-GCM,
SHA256 and elliptic curves.

** gnutls-cli: Added --benchmark-soft-ciphers to benchmark
the software version of the ciphers instead of hw accelerated
(where available)

** libgnutls: Public key ID calculation is consistent among
all structures. It uses a SHA-1 hash of the subjectPublicKeyInfo.

** libgnutls: gnutls_privkey_t allows setting external callback
to perform signing or decryption. Can be set using

** libgnutls: A certificate credentials structure can be
used with a gnutls_privkey_t and a gnutls_pcert_st
structure using gnutls_certificate_set_key().

** libgnutls: Fixes to enable external signing callback to
operate with TLS 1.2.

** libgnutls: Fixed crash when printing ECDSA certificate key
ID. Reported by Erik Jensen.

** libgnutls: Corrected VIA padlock code for C3. In C3 benchmarks
show a 2x increase in AES speed and a 14x increase in VIA nano. Added
support for hashes and HMACs.

** libgnutls: Compilation fixed when p11-kit is not detected.

** libgnutls: Fixed the deflate compression code.

** libgnutls: Added gnutls_x509_crt_get_authority_info_access.
Used to get the PKIX Authority Information Access (AIA) field.

** libgnutls: gnutls_x509_crt_print supports printing AIA fields.

** libgnutls: Added ability to gnutls_privkey_t to operate with
signing callback function.

** API and ABI modifications:
gnutls_x509_crt_get_authority_info_access (x509.h): Added function.
gnutls_privkey_import_ext: Added function.
gnutls_certificate_set_key: Added function.
gnutls_info_access_what_t (x509.h): Added enum.
GNUTLS_OID_AIA (x509.h): Added symbol.
GNUTLS_OID_AD_OCSP (x509.h): Added symbol.
GNUTLS_OID_AD_CAISSUERS (x509.h): Added symbol.
