This is simply a general question about your public keys. In the new version just released, I see a new a new public key [email blocked] was added to the keyring after installation. On your homepage, you list your public key with the old one for [email blocked]. Has the link to the public key simply not been updated yet, or you added a new key and the old is no longer? Just curious...

    The forum is blocking out those emails or key IDs you tried to post - but from what I see there are multiple keys for the GPG Tools team. The older key ID 00D026C4 created in 2010 (+ an RSA sub-key created in 2014) is what they use for their team and to sign the releases. There is also a newer key ID 558E41AF created in May 2020 that lists their support email address on it.

    Hi Paul,

    gpg_dude explained it very well already.

    Our [email blocked] key is mainly for signing releases.
    We have recently added a new key for [email blocked] which can be used to encrypt and send sensitive messages to us via email as an alternative to using our support platform.

    Hope that explains it.
