The GPGME 1.11.0 release we did on Wednesday had a number of problems
when not build against the latest support libraries.  Thus we release
GPGME 1.11.1 to fix them.

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 like gpg and gpgsm easier for applications.
GPGME provides a high-level crypto API for encryption, decryption,
signing, signature verification, and key management.  GPGME comes with
language bindings for Common Lisp, C++, QT, Python 2 and 3.

See https://gnupg.org/software/gpgme for more.

Noteworthy changes in version 1.11.1

 * Fixed build problems in the 1.11.0 release.

 * Added C++ interfaces which were planned for 1.11.0.

 The 1.11.0 release came with these changes:

 * New encryption API to support direct key specification including
   hidden recipients option and taking keys from a file.  This also
   allows to enforce the use of a subkey.

 * New encryption flag for the new API to enforce the use of plain
   mail addresses (addr-spec).

 * The import API can now tell whether v3 keys are skipped.  These old
   and basically broken keys are not anymore supported by GnuPG 2.1.

 * The decrypt and verify API will now return the MIME flag as
   specified by RFC-4880bis.

 * The offline mode now has an effect on gpg by disabling all network
   access.  [#3831]

 * A failed OpenPGP verification how returns the fingerprint of the
   intended key if a recent gpg version was used for signature

 * New tool gpgme-json as native messaging server for web browsers.
   As of now public key encryption and decryption is supported.
   Requires Libgpg-error 1.29.

 * New context flag "request-origin" which has an effect when used
   with GnuPG 2.2.6 or later.

 * New context flag "no-symkey-cache" which has an effect when used
   with GnuPG 2.2.7 or later.

 * New convenience constant GPGME_KEYLIST_MODE_LOCATE.

 * Improved the Python documentation.

 * Fixed a potential regression with GnuPG 2.2.6 or later.

 * Fixed a crash in the Python bindings on 32 bit platforms.  [#3892]

 * Various minor fixes.


You may download this library and its OpenPGP signature from:

  https://gnupg.org/ftp/gcrypt/gpgme/gpgme-1.11.1.tar.bz2 (1385k)

or from ftp.gnupg.org.  The SHA-1 checksum is

95b1fc427871ca8d30d6d3b1985c816fe0b5077b  gpgme-1.11.1.tar.bz2

but you better check the integrity using the provided signature. See
<https://gnupg.org/download/integrity_check.html> for details.


Maintenance and development of GnuPG is mostly financed by donations.
The GnuPG project currently employs one full-time developer and two
contractors.  Both work exclusivly on GnuPG and closely related software
like Libgcrypt, GPGME and GPA.

We have to thank all the people who helped the GnuPG project, be it
testing, coding, translating, suggesting, auditing, administering the
servers, spreading the word, answering questions on the mailing lists
and with financial support.

Happy hacking,

  Your GnuPG hackers

List of Release Signing Keys:

To guarantee that a downloaded GnuPG version has not been tampered by
malicious entities we provide signature files for all tarballs and
binary versions.  The keys are also signed by the long term keys of
their respective owners.  Current releases are signed by one or more
of these four keys:

  rsa2048 2011-01-12 [expires: 2019-12-31]
  Key fingerprint = D869 2123 C406 5DEA 5E0F  3AB5 249B 39D2 4F25 E3B6
