It is alreay available since Oct 3rd: It is a module: $ eval `grep gcc rijndael.c` && cp rijndael /usr/local/lib/gnupg/ $ echo "load-extension rijndael" >>~/.gnupg/options I did anounce it only on the developers ML so that we can test it first against other implementations. It seesm to works, but please wait a few days before you start to use it. Anyway, it is only useful for symmetric-only encryption becuase there are yet no Rijndael preferences.
