We are pleased to announce the release of GPA 0.8.0.

GPA is a graphical frontend for the GNU Privacy Guard (GnuPG,
http://www.gnupg.org). GPA can be used to encrypt, decrypt, and sign
files, to verify signatures and to manage the private and public keys.

This is a development release. Please be careful when using it on
production keys.

There is no patch to the previous release, as this would almost be as
big as the whole package.
