Please could you provide an Intel (or universal binary) version of the software ? Lion is coming and PPC applications will become useless.

GPGFileTool is being replaced by GPGServices which offers the same and even better and greater functionality.

I have just installed GPG 1.4.1 and its "cocoa front-end wrapper" programs, GPGFileTool being one of them, on my Mac running OS 10.4.2.

I imported my PGP (v8.1) public and secret keyrings into GPG. My passphrase contains high-ASCII characters -- characters such as • (bullet) and umlauted vowels such as ö.

Although I can successfully sign and decrypt files using Terminal's command line (cool to show off my faux unix abilities), I am unable to sign or decrypt files using GPGFileTool. Only by changing my passphrase to something without special characters such as umlauts, am I able to use GPG File Tool to sign or decrypt files.

Am I doing something wrong or stupid here? Or is this a shortcoming of GPGFileTool? If a shortcoming of the program, this is something that should really be fixed, considering that the underlying encryption/decryption engine properly interprets high-ASCII characters in Terminal's command line.

Hoping that it is just a preferences configuration problem on my end, I look forward to your (or the developers' response).

Thanx!
[Version 1.0.2]

I've been following and using GPGFileTool since its first version. It has grown into a multi-options, stable, efficient, user-friendly application with a fine and no-nonsense GUI. Version 1.0.

I only tested verifying, till now.

The Info is not as strutured displayed, as in GPGTools, but with a bit more details.

It is localized!

I'd just like it to process signature-files automatically (or have a pref, where I can set it to do that), as that saves time.

A great piece of software!
