Application sandboxing is now mandatory only for applications installed
through the Mac App Store; applications installed by the root user (or
equivalent) outside of Apple's "official" channels still have free reign
over the whole system, as they always did.
While the information and link quoted above will almost certainly be
helpful for some people with Apple Mail/GPGTools problems, there is
definitely more going on in my case. For one thing, the problems I have
observed with GnuPG 2.x are present outside of any mail agent, or other
application calling gpg2 (i.e. gpg2 --card-status does not work from the
command line--no mail involved). Aside from that, I typically
sign/encrypt messages from Mutt, not Apple Mail, so the sandbox is
unlikely to effect me in the near future anyway.
Since I have discovered that GnuPG 1 is mostly usable with my cards at
this point, I will try to soldier on with that, but it's annoying that
GnuPG 2, which was working fine previously, is suddenly such a mess due
to this update.
