Update to 1.9.17.
We are pleased to announce the availability of GnuPG 1.9.17 - the
branch of GnuPG featuring the S/MIME protocol. You should consider
using GnuPG 1.9 if you want to use the GPG-AGENT or GPGSM. The
GPG-AGENT is also helpful when using the stable GPG version 1.4 or if
you want to check out its ssh-agent replacement feature.
GnuPG 1.9 is the current development version of GnuPG. Despite of
that, most parts (in particular GPG-AGENT and GPGSM) are considered
ready for production use. Please keep on using GnuPG 1.4.x for
OpenPGP; 1.9 and 1.4 may - and actually should - be installed
This release features a partly rewrite of the smartcard access code as
well as several bug fixes and enhancements. Noteworthy things are:
* gpg-connect-agent has now features to handle Assuan INQUIRE
* Internal changes for OpenPGP cards. New Assuan command WRITEKEY.
* GNU Pth is now a hard requirement.
* [scdaemon] Support for OpenSC has been removed. Instead a new and
straightforward pkcs#15 modules has been written. As of now it
does allows only signing using TCOS cards but we are going to
enhance it to match all the old capabilities.
* [gpg-agent] New option --write-env-file and Assuan command
* [gpg-agent] New option --default-cache-ttl-ssh to set the TTL for
SSH passphrase caching independent from the other passphrases.
You will also need to get a new libassuan (our IPC library).
