There is still a lot of work to do. WK> The current state of PGP/GnuPG support for Mozilla is being documented by bug The gist of it is this: there is a contributed patch that might work with a yet unreleased NAI PGP-plugin. This patch might also work with GnuPG. However, the patch will not go into the trunk and Mozilla staff has delayed further work on it until after Mozilla 1.0 release (which is scheduled by end of 2001) for various reasons. The main one is that they have just too much work and other priorities for 1.0. They say that eventually there will be PGP support but not now. Another reason given is that PGP/GnuPG support will require architectural changes that the current patch lacks. I've had a brief look at Bernd Rausch's work and would expect his patch to be dismissed by Mozilla staff for the same reason. They seem to aim for a generic solution for Mail/News cryptography.
