Hi all - when I try to download gpgtools and open "GPGTools.mpkg", I get the warning that it can't be opened because it is from an unidentified developer. Of course I can change my settings to allow this, but is this something I should be seeing, and is there a reason that the GPGTools is not identified? As I've never seen this warning before it does make me a little nervous.

I checked the shasum of the file, and that checked out fine from the SHA key on

Thanks a lot!

    HI Rothsa,

    the problem is that we haven't yet changed our packaging process to sign all packages. We'll add this soon though.

    Please do not change the setting however, since it definitely is a useful security feature.
    You can add any application or package which shows this error message, by right-click open it (that will add a temporary exception for that package only)

    Hope that helps.
