Well, if you plan to work on Scute and release a new version, please 
consider applying your own patch for support of TLS 1.2. You posted that 
patch on the gnupg-devel list some months ago [1], but it never made its 
way to the public repository.

This patch is not only useful for TLS 1.2, it also makes Scute work with 
Thunderbird to apply S/MIME signatures to emails, and even with 
LibreOffice to sign OpenDocument files (well, with LibreOffice it only 
works if the card PIN has already been verified; otherwise LibreOffice 
crashes, but I don’t think this is Scute’s fault).

And although I didn’t have the chance to test, I suspect that with this 
patch, Scute could also work with GNOME Evolution.

May I remind you also of a patch I posted in january [2], which fixes a 
bug that caused Scute to fail to sign anything in some occasions (only 
when used with GnuPG 2.1, not 2.0).
