In the current version of GPG Keychain I can't set the owner trust when signing a key. Pleas bring back this option. Is there any reason this has been removed?

    Hi Alexander,

    you can specify the owner trust of a key by selecting the key and changing the owner trust in its details pane (double click on the key)

    We have removed a different option from the signature dialog, which asked how certain you were that the information specified in the key matches the information you have received from the owner (best accomplished by checking a photo ID in person). Since the option didn’t really add much benefit to the signing process itself, we decided to remove it.

    All the best,

    PS: Just in case: This KB-article explains how to verify and sign a key.
