Some may wonder why there is not much progress on GnuPG. Well, David is working a lot on it and I am working on a related project: gpg4win – which eventualy will be a win for folks required to use that proprietary OS from Microsoft.
Frankly, it is not a big deal as it merely collects existing applications and provides a framework for easy building a complete and easy to use installer with parts like gpg, WinPT, GPA, GPGee, GPGol and so on. The goal is that you will be able to run a
./configure --host=i586-mingw32msvc && make
and 2 NSIS based installer packages are generated: One to get the whole thing onto your Windows box and the other one just for installing the source package to comply with the terms of the GPL. We will also overhaul the 2 German manuals from the unmaintained GnuPP project.
If you are interested in the development process, checkout this Gforge site.
