Milestone: 6.3future
Summary: GnuTLS-2.0.4GnuTLS-2.3.4

Version increment to 2.3.4

Reviewing the ChangeLog reveals many API/ABI changes since the version currently in BLFS. It says that many applications just need to be recompiled, but there were also changes to the OpenPGP code that requires changes to existing packages.

So late in the game now that I cannot see this going in for the 6.3 release. Flagging it for the future, but if anyone knows for sure that the current version works properly with *all* the BLFS packages that can use it, please mark it back (with your notes) to 6.3 and we'll update it.

Curl compiled and confirmed to work with gnutls-2.6.3.

When using curl for "https" you may want to provide a certifitate, using the "--cacert" command line option, see for details:

Also libssh2 (the library which culr is using for secure connections), can be compiled against libgcrypt instead of openssl, using the "--with-libgcrypt" configure switch,

Mutt compiled against gnutls-2.6.3 and confirmed to work.

As a side note, cyrus-sasl requires openssl and by checking the archives and the cvs repository I didn't found any sign of gnutls support.
