I have released 0.1.2.
* The user id is build from three parts with some checking on the
input values. This creates a user-id always in this form
"My Name (optional comment) <email.address at some.domain>"
* You can select the default alorithms from the commandline or the
option file. Currently you can select only between Blowfish with
160bit key ("--cipher-algo blowfish") which is the default or
Blowfish with 128 bit key as defined in OpenPGP
* I changed the way fingerprints any keyids are calculated; this makes
old keyids invalid :-(. The method is the same as in OpenPGP but with a
packet version byte of 3; the standard states that this is a MUST NOT,
but it's a great security enhancement for V3 packets too. I don't think
that there are any applications which use ElGamal keys and V3 packets.
