[ANNOUNCE] NSS 3.39 Release

Kai Engert-4
The NSS team has released Network Security Services (NSS) 3.39,
which is a minor release.

Notable bug fixes:
* Bug 1483128 - NSS responded to an SSLv2-compatible ClientHello
  with a ServerHello that had an all-zero random (CVE-2018-12384)

New functionality:
* The tstclnt and selfserv utilities added support for configuring
  the enabled TLS signature schemes using the -J parameter.
* NSS will use RSA-PSS keys to authenticate in TLS. Support for
  these keys is disabled by default but can be enabled using
* certutil added the ability to delete an orphan private key from
  an NSS key database.
* Added the nss-policy-check utility, which can be used to check
  an NSS policy configuration for problems.
* A PKCS#11 URI can be used as an identifier for a PKCS#11 token.

Notable changes:
* The TLS 1.3 implementation uses the final version number from
  RFC 8446.
* Previous versions of NSS accepted an RSA PKCS#1 v1.5 signature
  where the DigestInfo structure was missing the NULL parameter.
  Starting with version 3.39, NSS requires the encoding to contain
  the NULL parameter.
* The tstclnt and selfserv test utilities no longer accept the -z
  parameter, as support for TLS compression was removed in a
  previous NSS version.
* The CA certificates list was updated to version 2.26.
* The following CA certificates were Added:
  - OU = GlobalSign Root CA - R6
  - CN = OISTE WISeKey Global Root GC CA
  The following CA certificate was Removed:
  - CN = ComSign
  The following CA certificates had the Websites trust bit disabled:
  - CN = Certplus Root CA G1
  - CN = Certplus Root CA G2
  - CN = OpenTrust Root CA G1
  - CN = OpenTrust Root CA G2
  - CN = OpenTrust Root CA G3
