GPGMail: mails sent to groups are only encoded for the first recipient

I installed GPGTools on a Mac with MacOS Sierra 10.12.5
I added in the file .gnupg/gpg.conf a line of the form

group [email blocked] = CD92D0E7 BFB06E10 2B1A44EC

Using the program, when I send an email to this mailing list [email blocked] check the "encrypt it" button,
then the mail is only encrypted for the first recipient and for myself. I verified that using gpg --list-packets on the source of the sent mail.

The correct behavior would be that the email is encrypted with all the given keys in the specified list.

Additional info
I'm happy to provide more informations or make more tests on request.

    additional information: I changed the order of the items in the group list. Indeed only the first one of the list is used for encoding the message.

    Hi Christoph,

    welcome to the GPGTools support platform. Sorry you are having problems using GPG Suite.

    The group feature is not yet working on macOS 10.12. It is a know issue for the beta on which we are currently working. We have a ticket for this problem. I connected this discussion with the existing ticket. That means, should this discussion get closed, it will be re-opened as soon as the ticket is closed. That way you'll stay in the loop and get notified as soon as we have news. Feel free to open a new discussions should you run into further problems or need assistance.

    All the best,

    Hi Christoph,

    this issue has been fixed. If you want to test the fix, please download our latest nightly GPG Suite. That page also has sig and SHA1 to verify the download.

    Best, steve

    Disclaimer: This is a development version which has not been thoroughly tested yet, so bugs or crashes are to be expected. Thanks for helping us test this fix.
