Please: DON'T YOU USE THE 1.1.x VERSION if you are not involved in development og GnuPG. At several places the documentation mentions that this version is not to be used for for production but for testing only. You will get into trouble if you use such a version!! To make this even more obvious, 1.1.1 will have it's default directory renamed. Do only use 1.0.x versions! The test versions named 1.0.0[a-z] are also okay to use but consider them as Beta.
