Beta for 2.1.1 available

mainly to test the fixes to the Windows installer, I did a quick beta
last Friday.  However, while testing it I found that in GPA the export
of keys to the keyserver does still not work.  Instead of delaying a
test release even more I have published that installer anyway.

Thus most things should be fixed and the Windows version should be
usable from the command line, via GPA, and in the explorer.  Of course
there are still open bugs and I continue to work on them.  The installer
has a new graphics on the welcome page but it is a pretty stupid one.
If someone has the talents creating a nice one, we could include that in
the next release [1].

To not bother the mirros with this test release the files are in my
scratch directory (and will eventually be removed):

1. The installer:

2. The complete but large sources including all GTK+ stuff to comply
   with the GPL:

3. A proper GnuPG source tarball:

Bug reports please to the gnupg-users.

GnuPG changes in 2.1.1-beta35

 * gpg: Detect faulty use of --verify on detached signatures.

 * gpg: New import option "keep-ownertrust".

 * gpg: Fixed regression in --refresh-keys.

 * gpg: Fixed best matching hash algo detection for ECDSA and EdDSA.

 * gpg: Improved perceived speed of secret key listisngs.

 * gpg: Print number of skipped PGP-2 keys on import.

 * gpgconf --kill does not anymore start a service only to kill it.

 * Fixed keyserver access for Windows.

 * Fixed build problems on Mac OS X

 * The Windows installer does now install development files

 * More translations (but most of them are not complete).

GPA in version 0.9.6 (2014-11-21)

 * Support keyserver operations for GnuPG 2.1.
   [But send keys does not yet work]

 * Implement the IMPORT_FILES server command.

 * New "Refresh Key" action in the key manager's context menu.

Note that in GPA's settings dialo there is no more list of keyservers.
This is now configured in the Backend Preferences under the GPG tab
because it uses the GPG directly.



[1] This should be a 164 x 314 x 8 colors, no transparency and white
background.  I can convert it to the required Windows format.  The GnuPG
logo master and variants of it can be found at:
