I have the issue that the update tries to install again and again. I tried to install and quit option as well as the relaunch option. Same result. It wants to install over and over again.

Mac Retina late 2012, OS 10.10.1, Mail 8.1,

thx for help and a question will you also try to bring PGP to the ipad? I would love it because you have such a beautiful implementation in

    Download the latest beta.
    Open GPG Suite - 2014.12-b4.dmg
    Run "Uninstall". No worries, your keys will not be erased.
    Run "Install".
    Everything should be fine...

    Hi Andreas,

    did you see a red box when doing the update check above the release notes?

    We added that to prevent users from running into your situation. It basically suggestes what Thomas wrote.

    For this single time an update via our GPG Suite is recommended. Then you can go back to automatic updates via GPGPreferences.

    Let us know if that did work.

    All the best,

    Hi thx.

    It worked. I don't know if it had the red box but now after reinstalling it works again.

    Thx a lot again.
