seahorse2-0.4.0 released

Seahorse is a Gnome front end for GnuPG. It is a tool for secure communications and data storage. Data encryption and digital signature creation can easily be performed through a GUI, and Key Management operations also can be performed. This release just contains minor updates to 0.3.7, but more importantly is the beginning of the move to seahorse-0.6.0. Please use and test and send us any bug reports. Planned features for seahorse-0.6.0 are a file manager, basic key editing, and support for key servers.

Seahorse status (move to 1.0.0)

Seahorse is currently moving towards a 1.0.0 release, which I hope will happen by the end of november. Since there so much that needs to be done, much which does not relate to feature enhancement, there will probably be no new releases until then. If you'd like to help out and expedite the release, please check out the task list (most are assigned to me, jap1, but I'd be happy to reassign them to a new member).

Seahorse 0.4.0 Released

This is the first release since Seahorse moved to SourceForge's CVS and it has a lot of changes: Danish, Finnish and German translations, command line options, caching of the public and secret keyrings to speed up the display, improvements to the GUI, Gnome Help support, improvements to the key manager including support for editing the owner trust value.

The command line options enable integration of Seahorse with email software and the distribution includes an example file showing how to use Seahorse with Mutt. This still needs to be improved so I would like to hear any comments you might have and I would really like to know if anybody succeeds in using Seahorse with any other MUA.
