I am pleased to announce GPA version 0.9.5.

GPA is a graphical frontend for the GNU Privacy Guard (GnuPG).  GPA can
be used for most operations supported by GnuPG using either the OpenPGP
or the S/MIME protocols.  A smartcard manager and a generic user
interface server features are included as well.

You can find the release here:

  ftp://ftp.gnupg.org/gcrypt/gpa/gpa-0.9.5.tar.bz2     (716k)

and soon on all ftp.gnupg.org mirrors.  A binary version for Windows is
currently not planned.

The SHA1 checksum for this release is:

ea53b934a7f5dd4e2dfb35dac2b35cafc7b54c90  gpa-0.9.5.tar.bz2

Noteworthy changes in version 0.9.5

 * GPA now starts with the UI server enabled and tests on startup
   whether such a server is already running to open that one instead
   of launching a second instance.

 * GPA is now aware of ECC keys.

 * Improved detection of CMS objects (which are used by S/MIME) and
   detached OpenPGP signatures.

 * Allow import and export of X.509 certificates.  Allow backup of
   X.509 keys.

 * The key creation date is now displayed in the key listing.

 * Armored detached signature files are now created with an ".asc"
   suffix and not with ".sig".

 * The GnuPG home directory is now detected using the gpgconf tool.

 * Added launch-gpa wrapper for Windows.

 * Fixed several bugs leading to crashs.

The driving force behind the development of GPA is my company g10 Code.
