I just uploaded a release candidate for GnuPG 1.4.8:


If you have problems with 1.4.7, you may want to give it a try.  Those
who reported build problems should also try to build that one and report
if the problems persist (to the gnupg-users ML).

Note that the language files are not all updated and our translators may
want to check whether they find time to send an update in.  There are
certainly a couple of bugs not yet fixed as we had not the time to work
through all bug reports, please complain if there are important things
still not resolved.

The actual release of 1.4.8 is planned for December 20.

Noteworthy changes in version 1.4.8 (unreleased)
    * Changed the license to GPLv3.

    * Improved detection of keyrings specified multiple times.

    * Changes to better cope with broken keyservers.

    * Minor bug fixes.

    * New option --rfc4880 which is currently identical to --openpgp.

Happy hacking,
