Hi Mark and Stefan,
the first beta of macOS 10.13 High Sierra has been released by Apple in early June. GPGMail will be disabled upon upgrade. We're already looking into the internal changes.
This KB-article has details as to why GPGMail becomes disabled after major macOS updates.
For any productive work and if you rely on using GPGMail, you should refrain from updating to the pre-release version of macOS. At this time we cannot say, when a first test version for macOS 10.13 High Sierra will be available.
as High Sierra is announced to be released in less than two weeks now, is there any idea of a timeline which components of GPGTools will work and which not? And as GPGMall will most probably not work: Any plans on when a first Beta could be available?
Maybe some "official" statement would be helpful now.
I can only support Gerd. Come on guys, if you want this project to live you should think about the fact that even for macOS Sierra, there was NEVER a stable release of GPGtools - and that is now a deprecated OS. I would be very interested in where the problems are that it is so hard to release GPGtools closer to macOS releases.
The only guys who can have an interest in that is the NSA who hate encrypted mail. No other way than to continue using Thunderbird with Enigmail. They at least work reliable.

I actually think that if the GPGTools team can not provide the time / support those great tools provide, they should open-source onto Github for transparency and greater community involvement.
I am honestly not sure why this was not done and why there is no public code-repository or issue tracker.
I am sure that all of us are more than happy to financially contribute to make this happen and support a dedicated development team (although I think by open-sourcing it, the community itself will make this happen without incurring huge costs).
