| Is version 1.3.92 a version that should be used or should a newbie be
| using a previous version until 1.4 is released?
| NOTE: THIS IS A DEVELOPMENT VERSION!
| It is only intended for test purposes and should NOT be
| used in a production environment or with production keys!
| what are the reprocusions of using 1.3.92
| learning as I go.......
If you're just beginning to use GnuPG I would suggest version 1.2.6
since it is the last "stable" release. While I have personally had no
problems with 1.3.92, Command Line use does have a learning curve and a
stable release would probably make it easier to determine whether a
problem was with you or something in the version code.
Should you decide to remain with 1.3.92 (as I assume it's installed now)
I do recommend that you maintain a Keyring back-up "just in case." I do
not know which O/S you are using, but if it's M$ Windows I generally
steer new people to the Nullify version (1.2.3nrl) as it may be
downloaded with a Windows installer.
Personally I find command line very easy once one is familiar with it;
however preferences vary. You should also look into a "frontend" for
GnuPG on a Windows box. My preference there is GPG Shell, but many
others prefer WinPT.
