we are pleased to announce the availability of an updated beta version of 
Gpg4win 2.2.0.

The download is available via the usual download page:


This version is intended for trying out and testing the furthcoming major 
version 2.2.0 (still scheduled for end of August).

We are also looking for some input on  
If you use a Mail Client with gnupg support it would be great if you code post 
some screenshots how your client handles signed data. Apart from a general 
comparison we are especially interested how your clients handle "non MIME" 

This software release incoporated work that was funded by a Small Technology 
Grant of the Information Security Coalition [1].
