GnuPG for OS X / macOS release 2.4.0 is now available for download via
https://sourceforge.net/p/gpgosx/docu/Download/ . It took me longer than
usual to provide this release, because I ran into build problems. I also
spent several weeks in hospitals over the last couple of months, and I
am still not well today, so I hope you can forgive the delay. ;-)

The disk image signature key is available via public keyservers, and it
can also be downloaded from https://www.seichter.de/pgp/gpgosx-signing.asc .

GnuPG 2.4.x is installed in /usr/local/gnupg-2.4 instead of the formerly
hardcoded directory /usr/local/gnupg-2.2. This enables installing both
stable and LTS releases of GnuPG for OS X side by side, for advanced
users' needs.

The one caveat is that the latest installation will replace existing
soft links in /usr/local/{bin,lib}. Please use absolute paths like
/usr/local/gnupg-2.2/bin/gpg2 if necessary. Enjoy.
