We are pleased to announce GPA version 0.10.0.

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 protocol.  A smartcard manager and a generic user
interface server are included as well.  Find its homepage at
https://gnupg.org/software/gpa .

GPA is Free Software (meaning that it respects your freedom).  It can
be freely used, modified and distributed under the terms of the GNU
General Public License.

Noteworthy changes in version 0.10.0 (2018-10-16)

 * Added key manager context menu items to copy the key fingerprint
   and the secret key to the clipboard.

 * Added "Details" buttons to many error popups to show raw
   diagnostic output from gpg.

 * Changed the "Retrieve Key" dialog to first try the Web Key
   Directory if a mail address is given.  Only if this lookup fails
   the keyservers are searched.

 * Added a user-ID notebook page to show per user-ID info.

 * Made location of locale dir under Windows more flexible.

 * Fixed crash on filename conversion error.  [#2185]

 * Fixed listing of key algos in the subkey windows.  [#3405]

 * Removed lazy loading of the secret keyring.  [#3748]

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

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, and answering questions on the mailing

Many thanks to our numerous financial supporters, both corporate and
individuals.  Without you it would not be possible to keep GnuPG in a
good shape and address all the small and larger requests made by our
users.  Thanks.

Happy hacking,

  Your GnuPG hackers
