You are being unreasonable.  3.0.9 was released just a month ago.  A
new GnuTLS release happens every 2 weeks, how can you expect each one
of them be ported to Windows at that pace?  Do you think it's just the
"./configure && make" dance we are used to on GNU/Linux?  It took me a
full week of uphill battle to do that with 3.0.9, what with all the
prerequisite packages I needed to port first.  The previous port
before that was of v2.10, from a year and a half ago.  How come it
suddenly is so urgent to have the latest and the greatest?

In any case, feel free to join the battle and help out, instead of
coming up with such unreasonable requirements.

You (or anyone else) can find the prebuilt Windows binaries of
GnuTLS 3.0.9 here:
