            Bug ID: 172153
           Summary: [SOUP] Remove LATEST_RECORD_VERSION from GnuTLS
                    priority string
           Product: WebKit
           Version: Other
          Hardware: PC
                OS: Linux

          Priority: P2
         Component: WebKit Gtk
          Assignee: webkit-unassigned at lists.webkit.org

Based on discussion with Nikos in https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=782218, we should remove LATEST_RECORD_VERSION from our GnuTLS priority string. This causes GnuTLS to use the latest TLS record version (the record format is separate from the TLS protocol version), which we needed a couple years ago (after dropping SSLv3) for maximum compatibility with broken web servers. But it's not needed anymore, and is causing new compatibility problems with other broken web servers, so let's get rid of it.
