Fedora Update Notification

Product     : Fedora Core 4
Name        : gnupg
Version     :                      
Release     : 3                  
Summary     : A GNU utility for secure communication and data storage.
Description :
GnuPG (GNU Privacy Guard) is a GNU utility for encrypting data and
creating digital signatures. GnuPG has advanced key management
capabilities and is compliant with the proposed OpenPGP Internet
standard described in RFC2440. Since GnuPG doesn't use any patented
algorithm, it is not compatible with any version of PGP2 (PGP2.x uses
only IDEA for symmetric-key encryption, which is patented worldwide).

Update Information:

The previous update, to version, could produce
errors when gpg attempted to read certain keyrings produced
by earlier versions of GnuPG.  This update includes a fix
for that bug.
* Mon Feb 20 2006 Nalin Dahyabhai <nalin at redhat.com> -
- add patch from David Shaw to fix error reading keyrings created with older
  versions of GnuPG (Enrico Scholz, #182029)
