First, to echo a previous replier, congratulations!  I am very happy with
GnuPG, and it looks like this version has made huge leaps.

Now... that's also a problem, in my mind, because the difference between 1.=
and 1.0.5 was chiefly a bugfix.  (There were also some translation changes =
a minor keyserver client change.)

What defines a second-order version?  Is the versioning of GnuPG meaningful
other than the apparent odd/even overloading of the middle digit?  I didn't
find any documentation of this on gnupg.org

It's nice to be able to see that a version number has changed significantly=
know, then, that the changes in the software are likewise significant.  Per=
this version should have been 1.2.0? =20
