Version 1.2.1 of GPGee has now been released and is available at
This is mainly a bugfix release to correct a couple of functional bugs
that appeared shortly after 1.2.0 was released. Bugs fixes include:
- - Performing sign+encrypt no longer results in GPGee causing Explorer to
- - Change in the URL used for the automatic version check (the previous
URL pointed at an ISP that cached its web pages, causing repeated
notices to "upgrade" to an earlier version).
- - Version now only occurs once per day as it was intended.
Additionally, the version checking now compares build numbers rather
than performing a simple string equality check. There should never
again, regardless of ISP problems, be a notice to upgrade to an earlier
There is one added feature for 1.2.1, designed to work with the
multi-key signatures added in 1.2.0. It is now possible to append new
signatures to an existing detached signature. In this way you can have
one person sign a document, give the document and signature to another
person at another maching and that person can add another signature.
For those that aren't familliar with GPGee, it is a Windows shell
extension that adds GnuPG support to explorer's right-click menu. You
can sign, sign+encrypt, encrypt, verify, and decrypt files right from
within the Windows explorer.
