libgdata 0.11.1 released

libgdata 0.11.1 is now available from:

b4b01adb72d7389b78d5c8a51d4375b294581ce70eff96cf9f55a3ced315e769  libgdata-0.11.1.changes
ec96788b641f357745646b5645196787bf002182c95298ae80b84b935c69759b  libgdata-0.11.1.tar.xz

This is the second release in the unstable 0.11.x series, and contains an
important security fix to ensure that libgdata verifies TLS
certificates before accepting them. This prevents man-in-the-middle
attacks which use spoofed TLS certificates.

This feature is enabled automatically, and has bumped libgdata's
requirement on libsoup to version 2.37.91. libsoup will now
automatically use the system's CA certificate file to verify TLS
