New releases of libgcrypt, libksba and newpg
Thu Feb 7 22:19:02 2002
I have just released some software for the Aegypten project. To
demonstrate that we made some progress I bumbed some version numbers a
[sorry, no diff file]
There is no need to build OpenSC yet as we only have some stubs. you
need to build libksba and libgcrypt prior to newpg.
The major news is that gpg-agent does now operate as a daemon ("eval
`gpg-agent`"), caches the passphrases and encrypts the secret keys.
You may want to try the gpg-agent with the latest GnuPG CVS version
which supports the new protocol - I am using this daily with Gnus.
There is also some progress with certicate handling etc.
Because theDirMngr has not yet been released the gpgsm option
--disable-crl-checks might come handy. For more information consult
http://www.gnupg.org/aegypten/ or ask on email@example.com.
