MacOS 10.11 and Mail 9.3 with GPGTools 2018.4

The release notes for the new 2018.4 release indicates that updates were back ported to GPG Mail 2.8 (Sierra only) as well as GPG Mail 3. However, running the installer causes the GPGMailLoader bundle to be installed in the usual /Library/Mail/Bundles folder, which is then disabled as not being compatible with Mail 9.3.

How does one use the latest GPGTools with MacOS Sierra and Mail 9.3? Or is there an older release which should be used instead? I assumed from the release notes that the installer would check versions and ensure a Mail 9.3 compatible GPG Mail 2.8 bundle was installed, but that does not seem to be the case.

    Ah, silly me...10.11 is El Capitan, not Sierra. So, better question, what is the correct (presumably no longer updated) version for El Capitan support?
