I installed GPG Suite - 2014.11.Yosemite-b1 on 10.10 (14!389) and get an alert when opening mail 8.0.

"Your GPGMail beta has expired"

    I get this too. Very annoying as draft emails are not saved (lost without recourse).

    Some problem with the date code?

    Hi everybody,

    we'd like to apologize again for this annoyance.
    We've managed to fix this really stupid bug and have a new test build for you.

    It would be great if some of you could install the new build and let us know if this fixes the problem as it should.

    To test, please follow these steps:

    1. Download the new GPGMail version:
      GPG Signature can be found at:

    2. Simply run the installer (no need to uninstall it first)
      (Should you have uninstalled GPG Suite in the meantime, please re-run the Yosemite-Beta1 installer and after that, install this new GPGMail version)

    3. Open -> Preferences -> GPGMail and make sure you're seeing build 790b

    4. Let us know if everything works as expected now.

    This very same bug is now happening in 2.5b2, 792b. When I start mail, i get the notice 'beta expired' One time i could see the plugin in the prefs, clicked update and it said 'already using latest'. Now the plugin is no longer loading, so cannot make screenshot of it.

    Same here, can anyone help?

    This is disappointing, I want to be able to use GPGMail reliably, but I have no more confidence to use it now.

    I have currently installed the latest version 2.5b2 (build 792b), and this is the version that is now supposed to have expired!

    I'm also experiencing this when starting the Mail app in OSX Yosemite for GPG v 2.5b1 Build 790b. Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

    There is a new version available on the main page which fixes this.

    Looks like version Beta 3 fixed it. Thanks Jeremy!

    Mmmm... I am running Mavericks and have not performed an upgrade ot GPGTools. GPG Keychain shows Version 1.2b1 (940b).

    I just received the same beta expired message. Confusing since I made no changes. Apple Mail restarted on its own too.

    So two questions:

    • Do I need to download the latest version of GPGTools?
    • And, I've been waiting for GPGTools to work with Yosemite before I upgrade to Yosemite - is there a stable version of GPGTools for the latest version of Yosemite?

    Thanks in advance for your time in answering...

    Addendum to previous post:

    • Keychain works OK, retrieves keys, check for updates responds that the version I have (1.2b1 (940b) ) is the most recent
    • Lost ability to encrypt or sign email - options no longer visible
