-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
Hash: SHA1

Hi!

We are pleased to announce the availability of the second release
candidate for GnuPG 1.2.3:

ftp://ftp.gnupg.org/gcrypt/alpha/gnupg/gnupg-1.2.3rc2.tar.gz (3218k)
ftp://ftp.gnupg.org/gcrypt/alpha/gnupg/gnupg-1.2.3rc2.tar.gz.sig

or as a patch against 1.2.3rc1:

ftp://ftp.gnupg.org/gcrypt/alpha/gnupg/gnupg-1.2.3rc1-1.2.3rc2.diff.gz (588k)

Win32 binaries are also available:

ftp://ftp.gnupg.org/gcrypt/alpha/binary/gnupg-w32cli-1.2.3rc2.zip (1304k)
ftp://ftp.gnupg.org/gcrypt/alpha/binary/gnupg-w32cli-1.2.3rc2.zip.sig

Mirrors are listed at http://gnupg.org/mirrors.html and most of them
should be in sync by tomorrow (Thursday).

MD5 sums are:

898e19cf998105a5cf7ec017d4d9d78b gnupg-1.2.3rc2.tar.gz
5f16053c4e1ce2d2a428797efde9fb6f gnupg-1.2.3rc1-1.2.3rc2.diff.gz
b444fb6079a57dd68d3f5780d8dbfce0 gnupg-w32cli-1.2.3rc2.zip

This release contains a number of bug fixes (including a fix for the
slow key listings in 1.2.2), as well as a large number of portability
fixes. If you had problems building 1.2.2 or earlier versions, we
would appreciate it if you would check this release candidate for any
build problems on your platform.

If there are no problems with this candidate, we expect the official
1.2.3 release to follow shortly, so please test soon.

Other changes since 1.2.2:

* New "--gnupg" option (set by default) that disables --openpgp,
and the various --pgpX emulation options. This replaces
--no-openpgp, and --no-pgpX, and also means that GnuPG has
finally grown a --gnupg option to make GnuPG act like GnuPG.

* A number of portability changes to make building GnuPG on
less-common platforms easier.

* Romanian translation.

* Two new %-expandos for use in notation and policy URLs. "%g"
expands to the fingerprint of the key making the signature
(which might be a subkey), and "%p" expands to the fingerprint
of the primary key that owns the key making the signature.

* New "tru" record in --with-colons --list-keys listings. It
shows the status of the trust database that was used to
calculate the key validity in the listings. See doc/DETAILS for
the specifics of this.

* New REVKEYSIG status tag for --status-fd. It indicates a valid
signature that was issued by a revoked key. See doc/DETAILS for
the specifics of this.

Happy hacking,

The GnuPG Team (David, Stefan, Timo, Werner)
