We are pleased to announce version 1.6.0 of GPGME.

  GnuPG Made Easy (GPGME) is a C language library that allows to add
  support for cryptography to a program.  It is designed to make access
  to public key crypto engines as included in GnuPG easier for
  applications.  GPGME provides a high-level crypto API for encryption,
  decryption, signing, signature verification, and key management.

* Noteworthy changes in version 1.6.0

  - Added gpgme_set_offline to do a key listinging w/o requiring CRL.

  - Added gpgme_set_status_cb to allow a user to see some status

  - Added an export mode for secret keys.

  - More precise error codes are returned if GnuPG >= 2.1.8 is used.

  - The passphrase handler for the loopback mode has been improved and may
    also be used with genkey.

  - [w32] The standard GnuPG 2.1 install directory is now seached for
    gpgconf.exe before a registry specified directory and the Gpg4win
    install directory.

  - [w32] gpgme-w32spawn.exe will now only be searched in the gpgme DLL
