    Hi jackiam2003,

    could you please download and install our latest GPG Suite nightly build. gpg 2.1 has been added to the nightly branch. 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.

    If we don't run into trouble with our nightly users this will likely make it into the next beta release. I'm closing this discussion. Should you need further assistance or have questions you can re-open this discussion here or open a new one any time.

    Best, steve
