i see you're currently recommending that yosemite beta users compile your yosemite nightly build branch for compatibility?

hate to be such a newb, but where do i find this, and how do i compile? really need to get gpg up and running again.

    I confirm that GPGTools has compatibility issues with Yosemite. After you have installed OSX I proceeded to manually reinstall the Tool GPG, but Mail crashes constantly, especially when trying to compose a new message. I had to uninstall GPGTools.

    yes, uninstalling tools stabilizes mail for me too.

    a fix for this asap would be greatly appreciated.

    Hi ditch,

    where are we recommending to compile your own GPGMail for 10.10? GPGMail does not work under 10.10. You can compile it, you can also use it and then it will crash.

    There's a ton of work that needs to be done. And that work goes far beyond adding some UUID of a pre-release 10.10.

    Again, we are very aware of this situation. Feel free to follow us on twitter, since should we get a working beta available before 10.10 is out (which we cannot promise), that's where we'll announce.

    All the best, steve

    @ditch: git clone https://github.com/GPGTools/GPGMail.git
    switch to branch "yosemite"
    cd UUID patcher

    sign: ok
    encrypt: ok - as long as UseOpenPGPInlineToSend is 'false'

    The Mail app crashes when I try to create a new message. Removing the bundle fixed the problem. This is the crash log:

    Crash log from Yanik as .txt
    Please attach any logs as attachment to keep this discussion readable, thanks!

    Also as mentioned above, we are aware of the crashes, so there's not really much use in sending them.

    Once we have a beta for testing, feel free to make those crash logs rain on us :)

    I just upgraded to yosmite and found to my dissatisfaction GPGMail had stopped working.

    I tried building from source and came across a couple of problems. The first was a signing error which was fixed by setting Signing to none in the GPGMail_Updater project.

    The uuid-patcher script didn't work for me. Mail was still giving the "Incompatible Plug-Ins Disabled" error. A quick google search led me to http://en.alexnogard.com/fix-incompatible-plug-ins-disabled-pour-gr...

    I fixed the problem by running

    $ defaults read /Applications/Mail.app/Contents/Info PluginCompatibilityUUID

    and copying the string into SupportedPluginCompatibilityUUIDs of the GPGMail target bundle properties in XCode.

    Hi Matt,

    GPGMail is not yet compatible with Yosemite. Since there are again many internal changes in Mail.app, getting the plugin to load is unfortunately not enough. It's very likely Mail will crash on launch.
    We're working hard on making it compatible but until then recommend to use GPGServices instead.

    @prich: Concerning the Yosemite branch as of today and OSX 10.10 dp6:
    Compiles with insignificant errors (update app).

    send mail:
    sign: ok
    encrypt: ok - with option "UseOpenPGPInlineToSend" set 'false'

    Paul et al,

    thanks for your offer to help testing. Currently there's nothing to do except making a big pot of your favorite tea, grab a great book, maybe a classic and relax :)

    We don't have any test version out yet. As soon as that is the case, we'll inform all interested users via Twitter and this support platform. Then the testing marathon can begin.

    As for now: Tolstoy.

    And sleep (which is currently the more difficult), so off to bed now.

    Let us know via the beta feedback should any trouble arise.

    At launch, Mail says it has desactivated the GPGMail plug-in.

    I currently use Mac OS X 10.10.1 (14B17)

    Hi Yanik,

    10.10.1 is not an OS that should be used in any productive environment. So far we focussed on getting GPGMail 10.10 ready.

    10.10.1 breaks GPGMail again. This is the ticket for that problem:


    All the best,

    Hi everybody,

    we now have a build that should work on 10.10.1

    It would be great if some of you could install the new build and let us know if this fixes the problem as it should.

    To test, please follow these steps:

    1.) Download the new GPGMail version:
    (GPG Signature can be found at: https://releases.gpgtools.org/GPGMail-2.5b1-790.dmg.sig)

    2.) Simply run the installer (no need to uninstall it first)
    (Should you have uninstalled GPG Suite in the meantime, please re-run the Yosemite-Beta1 installer and after that, install this new GPGMail version)

    3.) Open Mail.app -> Preferences -> GPGMail and make sure you're seeing build 790b

    4.) Let us know if everything works as expected now
