GPGMail appears twice in the preferences tabs.

I expect GPGMail tab to appear only once.

    Hi Paul,

    this issue has been fixed. If you want to test the fix, please download our latest nightly GPG Suite. That page also has sig and SHA1 to verify the download.

    Please test nightly build 2013n or newer and let us know if the problem is indeed solved for you.

    Best, steve

    Disclaimer: This is a development version which has not been thoroughly tested yet, so bugs or crashes are to be expected. Thanks for helping us test this fix.

    Thank you. The nightly seems to have fixed the doubling problem. Thanks for the quick fix! I’ll let you know if I encounter any bugs in the nightly.

    I have a follow-up question. Will the automatic updating mechanism now have my installation on a stream for nightlies, or will it revert my installation to releases or beta builds (I’ve been running with beta builds checked, and will probably keep it that way)?

    Good question. The nightlies will not update to newer nightlies. That would have to be done manually. But you will receive any stable or beta update, depending on your update preferences.

    The idea is to ensure stable and beta are the main channels used when running GPG Suite and the nightly are mostly used for debugging purposes / testing new features.
