Replying to message shows plain text in quoted message

I'm a new user, so maybe this is by design, but when I reply to a message in Mail that GPG Tools decrypted for me it shows the plain text of the encrypted message sent to me in the quoted portion.

If that is by design, is there a way to disable that feature?

    Hi Leith,

    this is by design. But we are aware that this is a security problem if the reply is sent unencryptedly. What would be a desired behavior for you?

    The ticket we have has the title "display a warning or improve indicator to make it much clearer, when a reply to an encrypted mail will not be encrypted".

    Would that be a solution?

    All the best,

    Hi Leith,

    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.

    Should the problem persist, please re-open this discussion. If you have other questions you can open a new one any time.

    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.
