GPG Keychain 1.1.3

I'm trying to import my existing key but get the error that no valid OpenPGP data was found. The key works as I can use it with github and varoius sftp servers. Any hint on what to do?

    Hi Andreas,

    dieser Key ist leider ein SSH-Key und hat so nicht direkt was mit OpenPGP zu tun und kann nicht direkt importiert werden.
    Es gibt die Möglichkeit diesen in einen OpenPGP key umzuwandeln.
    Hast du einen bestimmten Grund, warum du nicht einen neuen erzeugst, sondern diesen für OpenPGP auch verwenden möchtest?

    Hi Andreas,

    this has been fixed. GPG Keychain now shows a nice error message instead of crashing :)

    The fix will be included in the upcoming release for OS X 10.10

    All the best,
