gnupg 2.1 was released this morning.

GPG Suite/Luke:

“For now we will stick to the stable builds ...” »»»

How soon can we expect an update? ;-)

JK... But, it would be really nice with that update now.


Thanks! for all great work you do.

    I'm also interested in ECC support. Anything I can do to help?

    Are you guys accepting pull requests?

    Unfortunately 2.1 support will still take a little longer.
    As far as I know a lot has changed and we first have to adapt our library which is responsible for communicating with the gnupg binary.

    @Chris: we're absolutely accepting pull requests and would be happy to get some. Should you consider working on it, it would be great if you could look into Libmacgpg as well.

    Hi Eric and Chris,

    we have a first GPG Suite test build which integrates gpg 2.1. Here is the signature file for that release.

    It would be great if you could test this build and let us know if run into any trouble. Please note, that downgrading to the current beta release will require additional steps in case new keys were created using this test build. Depending on the test results, gpg 2.1 may soon land in the beta branch.

    All the best,

    Awesome! That's pretty cosmic timing because I was literally just thinking about this as I was walking down the street.
