  That's the version I'm using ;)
  I still use XP, so the problem with contextual menu doesn't affect me,
but I can confirm it exists (I asked a friend to install it in his laptop).

  Same here, but some people don't like "closed source" apps... but
since GPGshell is for windows, they already have a very big "closed
source" piece of software installed.

   Well, in the compatibility list, he said he won't update it anymore,
and he won't provide compatibility for versions of windows newer than
XP. I guess he is not using (or doesn't have access to) windows vista or
7. And I understand that, I won't be moving from XP until I'm forced to
do it, and it will require me to renew my computer too, so...
   Anyway, I just sent him a report, right now.
