Fully compatiple with OpenPGP (execept for the optional IDEA algorithm) and therefore with PGP >= 5 - however PGP >= 5 has a few glitches concerning their OpenPGP compatiplity. If you have problems with PGP 5, it is either that PGP 5 has a bug or GnuPG. Those of the last one are easy to fix - just report. -- Werner Koch at keyid 621CC013
