Hi,

I've just used Fire for the first time (nice app :-), and tried,
painfully, to get an encrypted and signed conversation
with someone. First I was unable to get it encrypted,
before I restarted Fire; then, despite all my efforts, I
couldn't sign (I have multiple keys). Moreover, my
userID, containing accents, was not displayed correctly.
GPG support in Fire is rather lame: I had a look at the code,
corrected some bugs (now I can sign, and my UID has
accents), and wonder why you don't use
GPGME.framework to interface Fire with gpg, instead of
invoking libgpgme directly (and wrongly!)? Would make
sense IMHO.

Cheers,

Stéphane

    Please send us your diffs. Just do cvs diff -wub from the
    fire directory.

    As to GPGME.framework, I agree that's a good idea to use,
    but we likely won't have time to do this before 1.0. I'd
    love to integrate the fixes you've already done though.

    GPG is now in a separate plugin, so pulling gpgme out and replacing it is much
    easier.
