we are pleased to announce the availability of the new stable Gpg4win version 

The download is available via the usual download page:


The most important innovation in this version is the maintenance and security 
update of several components. Many used libraries are now available in new 
versions. The core component GnuPG was updated to version 2.0.26. Kleopatra has 
been updated to KDE SC 4.14.

The German association of the blind and visually impaired (DVBS) [1] has made ​​
possible by their financing that Kleopatra is now usable with screen readers 
and so barrier-free accessible.

More details about Gpg4win 2.2.2 in the README:

security updates in future as well! Thank you!
