Version numbering

a. Mail->Preference->GPGMail says i Have version 2.7,
b. Your webpage says the latest version is 2017.1
c. If I click on the "Check Now" button, it says "You’re up-to-date!", "GPGSuite 2017.1 is currently the newest version available."

  1. Do I have Version 2.7 or version 2017.1?
  2. Is 2.7 and 2017.1 the same version?
  3. If so, why are you using 2 systems?

    Hi Puggan,

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

    System Preferences > GPG Suite Preferences > About has all the details. Let me know if that view explains what's going on.

    Basically GPG Suite is a collection of several components to offer seamless OpenPGP integration on macOS. GPGMail is one of the components.

    Can you add the suit-version at that page,
    as the "check for update" is updating the suit.

    confusing when a and c shows different versions.

    That has been added in the nightly build already.

    If you want to take a look: download and install our latest GPG Suite nightly build. That page also has sig and SHA256 to verify the download.

    All the best,

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