c75994034dd5e8ae8e6cfe5866ce72abc52cc013  gpg4win-src-2.1.0-rc1.exe
0aa1a23627fb58341e24aa1737821ae59c7c01ab  gpg4win-2.1.0-rc1.tar.bz2

Developers who want to *build an installer* need to get the following
files from http://ftp.gpg4win.org/Beta/ :
  gpg4win-2.1.0-rc1.tar.bz2  (12M)

A separate installer with the source files used to build the above
installer is available at:
  ftp://ftp.gpg4win.org/gpg4win/Beta/gpg4win-src-2.1.0-rc1.exe  (265M)

Most developer 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. For details see:

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.
