Is there a list of previous SHA1 hashes?

    no we don't maintain a list for previous releases. The current GPG Suite contains important security fixes and provides overall better stability.

    Is there a specific reason you would want to use an old release?

    All the best,

    I am not running the latest version but the previous GPGtools version and I would lie to verify the validation of that SHA hash as the software is working on one machine but not the other.

    How is it possible that a secure application does not have a record of the SHA hash of at least previous developments?

    Hm, I am not sure if something is not working, why you would not download the update and see if the latest version fixes your problem.

    Also I don't know yet, what is not working for you.

    Please tell us what version you have currently installed. Based on that we will be able to tell you the hash

    Following are the hashes for the few last releases:

    2016.08 (v1): be125df775ade791c7d03f9ba2309e07c3737f59
    2016.08 (v2): 6adb52ce063b3952542037fa37394a0279acce3d
    (there was a small problem with the updater in the v1 one) 2016.10: da8854cd9435d077dbdac7e71dac920ac38d15f2

    Hope that helps.

    I have 6adb52ce063b3952542037fa37394a0279acce3d GPG_Suite-2016.08_v2.dmg.

    Which verifies with your value.

    However I would highly recommend that at least the previous hashes be kept on file for verification because if there is a problem with the latest version people would like to roll back to the previous version and validate the hash. Many other security sites do this such as firefox and tunnelblick. I am sure you don't trash previous versions.

    This case can be closed
