Lack of stable nightly build (web)

Dear GPG Support,

I upgraded to 10.7.5 only to discover that GPG Mail did not work. So, I installed the nightly build—several times. At first, it was OK, but if I sent out an email, GPG Mail would cause Apple Mail to crash. I would install a new version of the nightly build, only to have the same thing occur.

So I downgraded to 10.7.4 and am using the alpha build without problems. Other than occasionally GPG mail would take up 100% of system resources, even if Apple Mail is quit. At that point, I have to do a force quit of GPG Mail.

I am just stuck at 10.7.4.

Of course, I won't upgrade to 10.8 until you have a fix.

All the Best,

P.S. Enigmail for Thunderbird works well and is stable. They have a new version ready when TB is upgraded (usually). But I prefer to use Apple Mail.

    Hi Wfm,

    the crash you're seeing is most likely related to the fact, that you have 2 secret keys associated with the same email address.
    We've started to implement support for that, but a version fully supporting it is not yet released.
    In the meantime, to fix the problem with the nightly, please disable one of the 2 keys unless you really need them both.

    Let us know if that helps!
