I just uploaded an _experimental_ Windows installer with GnuPG 2.1.3:  (2539k)

The exe has a SHA-1 checksum of

d5630904b3d68eddc2730a00bfc67d52658cbe7e  gnupg-w32-2.1.3_20150413.exe

I did only some quick tests and some basic stuff worked for me.

WARNING: This is a command line only version which does not even provide
a Pinentry.  Thus it is pretty useless unless you have installed your
own Pinentry.  A libgpgme is however included so that it can be used for

A Pinentry is not provided so to avoid dependency problems with the Gtk+
or Qt+ libraries.  It would have been possible to include a simple
Windows pinentry and thus avoid dependencies on external libraries but
the one we have is too horrible for actual use.  A statically linked
version of a Pinentry is also too large.




The installer has been build using this complete source tarball:  (9013k)

and the command 

  make -f ./build-aux/ this-w32-installer

You need a complete and working mingw tool chain to do this.  You may
also prefer not to use the above source tarball but build it directly in
the same way I generated the source tarball, namely using

  make -f ./build-aux/ w32-installer
  make -f ./build-aux/ w32-source

which downloads all required packages, verifies their checksums, builds
the installer, and finally a complete source tarball.

Die Gedanken sind frei.  Ausnahmen regelt ein Bundesgesetz.
