After a long time, g10 Code GmbH decided to update the code of the
Outlook GPG plugin (originally written by G-DATA). This version
fixes a lot of problems reported by users on several mailing lists.

All users who have problems with their current Outlook GPG version might 
want to update their files to see if this version fixes the problems. 
You can download the zip archive and the digital signature here: (99k)
MD5 checksums for the files are:


Noteworthy changes in version 0.93

- New interface which is more generic and tries to be a
  complete wrapper around the GPG binary.
- Logging support to make it easier to track down errors
  and to allow remote debugging.
- Keylisting now supports keys which only consist of one
  primary key (RSA Sign-Encrypt, old v3 Keys, ElGamal).
- The users email address is used to identify the recipient.
  This way GPG automatically decides what subkey to use.
- The plaintext is used for replying mails.
- Show some information about the GPG data as part of the message.
  For example the a 'gpg -k' like output if the message contain
  one or more public keys.
  Or if there was a problem with decryption use the GPG output message.
- New GPG I/O subsystem to fix some hanging processes.
- Store all user ID's to improve the searching system.

That's it.

g10 Code GmbH ( of course also provides
commercial support for the plugin and other GPG components.
