we are pleased to announce the availability of a new stable Gpg4win
release: Version 2.0.2.

This is basically the same as the 2nd release candidate of 2.0.2.

The download is available via the usual download page:


Important Note
Infrequently Kleopatra hangs while updating the certificates. 
(The button "Stop Operation" is enabled but does not take effect.) If this is 
the case, you can stop and restart Kleopatra to resolve the issue. 
A solution to this defect is in progress, but this chance whould have delayed 
the 2.0.2 release even further.

For installation instructions, please visit http://www.gpg4win.org or
read on.

Developers who want to *build an installer* need to get the following
files from http://ftp.gpg4win.org/ :

  gpg4win-2.0.2.tar.bz2  (5M)

The second file is a digital signature of the the first file.  Either
check that this signature is fine or compare with the checksums given
below.  (see also http://www.gpg4win.org/package-integrity.html)

The *ready to use installer* is available at:

  http://ftp.gpg4win.org/gpg4win-2.0.2.exe  (35M)

Or using the ftp protocol at:

  ftp://ftp.gpg4win.org/gpg4win/gpg4win-2.0.2.exe  (35M)

SHA1 checksums for these files are given below.

If you don't need the certificate manager Kleopatra or the manuals, 
you might alternatively download the "light" version of the installer:

  http://ftp.gpg4win.org/gpg4win-light-2.0.2.exe  (12M)

or using FTP at:

  ftp://ftp.gpg4win.org/gpg4win/gpg4win-light-2.0.2.exe  (12M)

A separate installer with the source files used to build the above
installer is available at:

  ftp://ftp.gpg4win.org/gpg4win/gpg4win-src-2.0.2.exe  (277M)

Most people don't need this source installer; it is merely stored on
that server to satisfy the conditions of the GPL. In general it is
better to get the gpg4win builder tarball (see above) and follow the
instructions in the README to build new installers; building the
installer is not possible on Windows machines and works best on current
Debian GNU/Linux systems.

SHA1 checksums are:

If you have problems downloading the above files, you may try the mirror
server listed at the download page.

We like to thank the authors of the included packages, the NSIS authors,
all other contributors and first of all, those folks who stayed with us
and helped testing Gpg4win.
