 I've just released gnutls 3.1.0. This is release is a major feature
update on gnutls 3.0.x, but is fully binary and source compatible with
it. The main addition are support for the TPM module to store
cryptographic keys, and simplified functions to access encrypted structures.

* Version 3.1.0 (released 2012-08-15)

** libgnutls: Added direct support for TPM as a cryptographic module
in gnutls/tpm.h. TPM keys can be used in functions accepting files
using URLs of the following types:

** libgnutls: Priority string level keywords can be combined.
For example the string "SECURE256:+SUITEB128" is now allowed.

** libgnutls: requires libnettle 2.5.

** libgnutls: Use the PKCS #1 1.5 encoding provided by nettle (2.5)
for encryption and signatures.

** libgnutls: Added GNUTLS_CERT_SIGNATURE_FAILURE to differentiate
between generic errors and signature verification errors in the
verification functions.

** libgnutls: Added gnutls_pkcs12_simple_parse() as a helper function
to simplify parsing in most PKCS #12 use cases.

** libgnutls: gnutls_certificate_set_x509_simple_pkcs12_file() adds
the whole certificate chain (if any) to the credentials structure,
instead of only the end-user certificate.

** libgnutls: Key import functions such as gnutls_pkcs12_simple_parse()
and gnutls_x509_privkey_import_pkcs8(), return consistently
GNUTLS_E_DECRYPTION_FAILED if the input structure is encrypted but no
password was provided.

** libgnutls: Added gnutls_handshake_set_timeout() a function that
allows to set the maximum time spent in a handshake.

** libgnutlsxx: Added session::set_transport_vec_push_function. Patch
by Alexandre Bique.

** tpmtool: Added. It is a tool to generate private keys in the

** gnutls-cli: --benchmark-tls was split to --benchmark-tls-kx
and --benchmark-tls-ciphers

** certtool: generated PKCS #12 structures may hold more than one
private key. Patch by Lucas Fisher.

** certtool: Added option --null-password to generate/decrypt keys
that use a NULL password (in schemas that distinguish between NULL
an empty passwords).

** minitasn1: Upgraded to libtasn1 version 2.13.
