We are pleased to announce the availability of GnuPG 1.9.14, the new
development branch of GnuPG for use with S/MIME.

GnuPG 1.9 is the development version of GnuPG; it is based on the
GnuPG 1.3 code and the previous NewPG package.  It will eventually
lead to a GnuPG 2.0 release.  Note that GnuPG 1.4 and 1.9 are not yet
in sync and thus features and bug fixes done in 1.4 are not available
in 1.9.  Please keep on using 1.4 for OpenPGP. You should use GnuPG
1.9 if you want to use the gpg-agent or gpgsm (the S/MIME variant of
gpg).  Note that the gpg-agent is also helpful when using the stable
gpg version 1.4 (as well as the old 1.2 series).

This is mainly a bug fix release with a few new things:

 * [gpg-agent] New option --use-standard-socket to allow the use of a
   fixed socket.  gpgsm falls back to this socket if GPG_AGENT_INFO
   has not been set.

 * Ported to MS Windows with some functional limitations.

 * New tool gpg-preset-passphrase.

Please get it from the mirrors as listed at
