mailcrypt-3.5.8 released

I've just released mailcrypt-3.5.8. This is a bugfix release, bringing anonymous remailer support up to date with modern remailers, and fixing a GPG passphrase caching bug that would hit folks who use multiple keys with the same name but different passphrases.

Give it a whirl, submit bugs. I'm especially interested in feedback on the remailer changes.

I've just released mailcrypt-3.5.7. This release is mostly minor bugfixes.. the most notable new feature is code to integrate with the Mew mail client. There are also some changes to work with new versions of mh-e which use read-only message buffers. I've also added a unit-test framework to verify the GPG decryption path, and intend to expand those tests in the future.

Give it a spin, send in any bugs you encounter.... read more
