Gnome-gpg 0.4.0 Released

I put out a new release of gnome-gpg containing the fixes I mentioned previously.

The internal changes are fairly extensive, but the user interface remains pretty much the same. The main differences are:

  • If you enter an incorrect passphrase, the password prompt will be displayed again, the same as when gpg is invoked normally.
  • If an incorrect passphrase is stored in the keyring (e.g. if you changed your key’s passphrase), the passphrase prompt will be displayed. Previously you would need to use the --forget-passphrase option to tell gnome-gpg to ignore the passphrase in the keyring.
  • The passphrase dialog is now set as a transient for the terminal that spawned it, using the same algorithm as zenity. This means that the passphrase dialog pops up on the same workspace as the terminal, and can’t be obscured by the terminal.

    Any ideas how to use it with Mutt?

    I got gnome-gpg working with Mutt:

    ” tell Mutt not to ask for a passphrase (it appears that you need to have Mutt 1.5.11 for this to work)
    set pgp_use_gpg_agent

    ” tell Mutt to use gnome-gpg: I copied the default gpg command, removed –batch, and replaced gpg with gnome-gpg
    set pgp_sign_command=”gnome-gpg –no-verbose –quiet –output – %?p?–passphrase-fd 0? –armor –detach-sign –textmode %?a?-u %a? %f”

    (Um, where’s the preview button? What sort of markup can I use in comments?)

    Hey James.
    Saw that great stuff you posted about Australia’s number 1 show, “Double the Fist”.
    I just thought you’d like to know that I’ve started an online petition to the ABC to bring the show back. Here’s the link:

    Tell as many people as possible. The more signiatures, the better our chances.
    Full Fist.
