-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
We are pleased to announce the availability of PKCS#11 support for gpg2. The
first release that we deem decent enough to be publicly released can be found
at the following link:
 Me and Alon Bar-Lev are current developers.
The programs works (hopefully) as a drop-in replacement for "scd" distributed
with GnuPG. It has been tested with some PKCS#11 providers (including IBM's
OpenCryptoki softtoken), and card learning, signing as well as encryption are
working. You are welcome to test it and report any problems via sourceforge.
Creating this "fork" of scd for was neccessary because of Werner Koch's view
upon PKCS#11 (which we don't agree with at all), and consequent refusal to
integrate PKCS#11 support with regular GnuPG distribution.
More information on the website is coming soon. Documentation and setup
instructions are included in the source distribution.
