The first "actual" release of WinGPG, a Windows 9x, ME, NT, 2K installation 
package of GPG and Timo Schulz's great little WinPT program, is now 
available at The ZIP archive is 
available at for those who just want 
to browse through the files.

I've fixed numerous bugs since the beta release (though this is probably 
still a "beta" release and that was an "alpha"). It seems to work OK on a 
couple of PCs and seems to be very easy to use.

Included in this release is my first public disclosure of a passphrase 
selection scheme I've invented and a user's guide ("ABC MANUAL") written in 
simple, clear language for the average computer user who doesn't know (or 
care) anything about cryptography.

Timo and I plan to work together on the next release, and look forward to 
comments, suggestions, and the inevitable bug reports. (He's the real 
programmer - I'm just a frustrated PGP user and part-time crypto inventor 
who still remembers how to write batch files and who got tired of waiting 
for a Win32 installation package people could actually understand.)

Have fun.
