Just wanted to point out that the release announcement left me confused at a 
few points. If it confused me (as a long time GnuPG User/Contributor) I 
assume it will confuse many others as well.

To restate, I was confused about
* What the items in section "What's New in GnuPG-2.1" actually meant,
  it were the differencen 2.1.1 to 2.1.2 as I could figure out, but this 
  wasn't clear from the text.
* "This version fixes a lot of bugs found after the release of 2.1.0"
  which probably should have been "2.1.1". 

Overall I believe the announcement as too much text that stays the same
for each release. It would benefit from being focussed on the key differences
and let the rest be a standard "doc" part.

ps.: Congrats on the taz article (in German) I've added the link to the wiki.
