We are pleased to announce the availability of the first release
candidate for the forthcoming 1.4.6 version of GnuPG:
SHA-1 checksums for the above files are:
Note that this is only a release candidate, and as such is not
intended for use on production systems. If you are inclined to help
test, however, we would appreciate you trying this new version and
reporting any problems.
Noteworthy changes since 1.4.5:
* Fixed a bug while decrypting certain compressed and encrypted
* Fixed a buffer overflow in gpg. [bug#728]
* Added --s2k-count to set the number of times passphrase mangling
is repeated. The default is 65536 times.
* Added a GPL license exception to the keyserver helper programs
gpgkeys_ldap, gpgkeys_curl, and gpgkeys_hkp, to clarify any
potential questions about the ability to distribute binaries
that link to the OpenSSL library. GnuPG does not link directly
to OpenSSL, but libcurl (used for HKP, HTTP, and FTP) and
OpenLDAP (used for LDAP) may. Note that this license exception
is considered a bug fix and is intended to forgive any
violations pertaining to this issue, including those that may
have occurred in the past.
