-<h1>gpg4win: GnuPG for Windows</h1>
+<h2>New User?</h2>
-<h2>About gpg4win</h2>
+gpg4win is a installer package for Windows /95/98/XP/2000/2003)
+with computer programs and handbooks for EMail and file encryption.
-The gpg4win project aims to provide and maintain a Windows-Installer
-<a href="http://www.gnupg.org/">GnuPG</a> and
-related products
-(<a href="http://www.gnupg.org/(en)/related_software/gpa/index.html">GPA</a>,
-<a href="http://www.winpt.org">WinPT</a>,
-<a href="http://www.g10code.de/p-gpgol.html">GPGol</a>,
-<a href="http://claws.sylpheed.org">Sylpheed-Claws</a>,
-<a href="http://gpgee.excelcia.org/">GPGee</a>,

-as well as documentation).
+You can <b>choose all or some of the following modules</b> during installation:
+  <tr>
+    <td>GnuPG:</td>
+    <td>The core; this is the actual encryption tool</td>
+  </tr>
+  <tr>
+    <td>WinPT:</td>
+    <td>A key manager and helper for various encryption matters</td>
+  </tr>
+  <tr>
+    <td>GPA:</td>
+    <td>Another key manager, tasts are simply different</td>
+  </tr>
+  <tr>
+    <td>GPGol:</td>
+    <td>A plugin for Microsoft Outlook 2003 (email encryption)</td>
+  </tr>
+  <tr>
+    <td>GPGee:</td>
+    <td>A plugin for Microsoft Explorer (file encryption)</td>
+  </tr>
+  <tr>
+    <td>Sylpheed-Claws:</td>
+    <td>A complete email program including the plugin for GnuPG</td>
+  </tr>
-It is an international project. Apart from the english as default,
-currently german language is fully supported, maintainers for other languages are welcome.
+Documentation (only in german so far):
+  <tr>
+    <td>Gpg4win für Einsteiger:</td>
+    <td>A (german!) handbook specifically for newbies</td>
+  </tr>
+  <tr>
+    <td>Gpg4win für Durchblicker:</td>
+    <td>A (german!) handbook about some background, for beginners</td>
+  </tr>
-The main difference compared to similar projects
-(<a href="http://www.gnupp.de/start.html">GnuPP</a> and
-<a href="http://sourceforge.net/projects/winpt">Windows Privacy Tools</a>) is
-that at first we developed the <b>gpg4win-Builder</b>.
-This one allows to very easily create new gpg4win.exe installers
-with updated components.
-This could even be done on a GNU/Linux system where almost
-all products are automatically cross-compiled.
+gpg4win can be <b>installed and tested with just a few mouse clicks</b>.
+Of course you should be administrator of your system or have administration
-With this approach we hope to avoid quick aging of installer packages
-as it happened in the past with the other approaches, because it is quite
-simple to create updates.
+The best point to start is with the illustrative handbook
+<em>gpg4win für Einsteiger</em> (so far only available in german!).
-<h2>Download gpg4win installation package</h2>
+<h2>About gpg4win</h2>
-Choose the newest version gpg4win-n.n.n.exe:
+The gpg4win <b>project aims at</b> updating the gpg4win Windows installation
+package with GnuPG encryption tool, associated applications and
+documentation on a regular basis.
+Especially the documentation (handbooks "Einsteiger"
+and "Durchblicker") are directly maintained as part of the gpg4win project.
+It is an international project. Due to the origin of the project and
+many members, german language is fully supported as well.
+Currently the handbooks are even only available in german.
+Any translators are very welcome!
+The main difference compared to all other similar approaches
+(mainly GnuPP, GnuPT, Windows Privacy Tools and GnuPG-Basics)
+is that the first thing developed was the <b>gpg4win-Builder</b>.
+This builder allows to easily create new gpg4win.exe installers
+with updated components.
+It runs best on a GNU/Linux system. Almost all products
+are even automatically cross-compiled for integration into
+the installer.
+With this concept it is hoped to good practical support to <b>prevent
+quick aging of the installer package</b>. Because updating is much easier
+and does not depend on a single person.
