The latest release from the development branch of GnuPG is ready for
public consumption.  This is a branch to create what will extremely
soon become the new stable release of GnuPG 1.4.

We strongly encourage people to try this development release and
report any feedback or problems to gnupg-devel at gnupg.org.  If you have
been waiting until the 1.4 release is imminent before trying the code,
that time is now.

installed.  For convenience we make this DLL available at:

Noteworthy changes in version 1.3.92 (2004-10-28)
    * Added Russian man page. Thanks to Pawel I. Shajdo.

    * libiconv is now used to support other character sets other than
      UTF-8, Latin-1,-2 and KOI8-2.  The W32 version will only work
      correctly when iconv.dll is installed on the system.  A binary
      version is available at all GNU mirror sites under libiconv.
    * gettext for Windows has been simplified.  The MO files are now
      distributed UTF-8 encoded and gpg translates on the fly.
