I think Vedaal is just using the gnupg2 package provided by Ubuntu 16.04

Current package version is 2.1.11-6ubuntu2. Shouldn't important fixes
have been backported by Ubuntu? Although it is odd this package hasn't
been updated for 18 months...


I use the GNU Privacy Guard (GnuPG) in combination with Enigmail.
