Why use an old GNUTLS?

Hi there,

I found some problems with gnutls-1.4.5-2.fc7. One of them has caused an
Emacs package Gnus to fail to retrieve emails via pop. I don't know if
the bug has been fixed in latest GNUTLS 2.0 but version 1.4.5 is so old
and many bugs have been fixed. Is there a reason to stick to an old
GNUTLS? Any plan to fix the bug?
