    There's a specific yosemite beta build to be downloaded from
    Simply click on the "GPG Suite Yosemite Beta" button, and install.

    After that, everything should work as expected.

    Can you let us know if beta 3 brings you back to working state.

    All the best,

    Hi Steve
    Beta 3 appears to be working. I sent myself an email to test encryption and that worked. The signing of mails is also working (you should see certificate on this response). So all good so far. What I need now is to work through how to share a public key and get some of my fiends using it. So, stable so far on macbook pro. WIll test on iMac as soon as back in office.

    Hi Lee,

    well that is great news. Thanks for providing feedback.

    Sharing your public key is simple. We suggest uploading it to the key servers (note though, that it can only be revoked on there but not removed).

    Besides that option, we now have a nice little feature in GPG Keychain. Select your own key and select from the top menu File > Mail Public Key...

    That will create a new mail and attached to that mail will be your public key.

    All the best,
