GPG Suite 2015-06 is finished and ready for download!

Everyone should install GPG Suite and climb its learning curve. It's one way We The People can maintain out Right To Privacy. And it's FREE. But I do recommend donating!

Hi Id-Ego-SuperEgo, unfortunately this happens due to a bug in macOS Mail on Mojave. We have filed the bug with Apple as rdar://45552251 but it is unclear how long it will take them to resolve the issue.

If you are still seeing this problem, please open a discussion on our support platform: https://gpgtools.tenderapp.com/

I was shocked when I updated GPG Suite, opened Mail, only to see a notification windows asking me to Activate GPG Mail, Start Trial or Buy. Yes, GPG Suite is no longer Free! GPG Mail 3 (part of GPG Suite) onwards is a paid product - currently $23.90 US covering 3 machines. I immediately rolled back to the free version to do some thinking and to get out a few emails. GPG/PGP has been part of my workflow far too long to stop using it now - so I'm paying. I'll be reaching out to see if there is any kind of discount as I need to buy 65 licenses. Ouch! While I understand the developers need to survive - they did a horrible job communicating the change. They claim they mentioned the change at the beginning of the year - I don't remember reading about it - I'll just have to take the developers word.

Yes, and crash Apple Mail on macOS 10.12.6 ! Tested on two computers.
Uninstall and install the older one: https://releases.gpgtools.org/GPG_Suite-2018.3.dmg

They actually did announce the necessity to move to a paid support-model quite a while ago.

Anyway, even though I'm not such a heavy user as you obviously are, I felt some moral obligation to donate to the developers a couple of times. It's a matter of give and take: They donate much of their spare time for your benefit, so it's only fair to give back some money.

They even offered to give away a support account free of cost to donors.

On the other hand, obviously you can't live off the money people chose to give you for software of their own accord, so they needed to switch their business model or stop developing. I prefer the former option.

I'm shocked, shocked I say, that anyone would complain.

You don't want to pay the toll, do the heavy lifting yourself: they offer complete source, so feel "free" to compile, debug & configure as you see fit.

Seriously, Millennials! Taking it all for granted and whingeing at the slightest affront to their entitlement.

The source code for GPG Suite is available at their website. If you're willing and able to compile it yourself, then it's free. But note that GPG Suite is an excellent cause worthy of our support, especially in this messed up politard time of totalitarian pressures. So if you compile yourself, donate as well. That's at least my intention.

I use the GPG Suite often, and it's always great, incl. Apple Mail integration. However, the current developments are downright harrowing. The final update to macOS Sierra has already been released, with High Sierra on the horizon, and GPG Suite is still in public beta, so I'm still twiddling my thumbs on El Capitan. (GnuPG v2.1 integration is also taking forever.) And I don't accept excuses. Other Apple Mail plugin developers have been fast in upgrading their software for Sierra compatibility, again and again, and if the GPG Suite developers can't keep up, they need to think about going for a paid product, not just donations. Don't get me wrong, it's a great software, but the last year—THE LAST YEAR!!!— has been frustrating, to put it mildly. I don't believe the developers realize the negative emotions they're spawning. This needs to stop. This needs to come around fast, super fast, like yesterday.

The current word from the GPGTools team: "GPGMail, our plugin for securing emails using GPG in Mail.app is not yet compatible with macOS Sierra. If you rely on GPGMail, please refrain from updating to macOS Sierra for the time being!" See Cowcide's post below for the link to a workaround for those of us who moved to Sierra...

Yeah, like one year beta. I think they're skipping Sierra support altogether, and they're going straight for High Sierra compatibility and GnuPG v2.1 for the final release.

Not working with Mail in Sierra. Bummer. When I launch Apple Mail it says the GPG plug-in isn't compatible and it disables it. Here's a link from dev that acknowledges issue and has temp workaround:

Hope it get fixed soon.

It works if you use the beta version. I have been using it for about a month and no problems whatsoever.

GPG Suite 2015.08 - August 14th, 2015 Our newest release is mostly a bug fixing release for the most pressing issues. We are however very happy to say, that one of our longest standing bugs has been squashed. Many of you might have experienced Mail.app no longer signing messages and reporting a "No pinentry" error. The only workaround was to restart your mac. Well, we're happy to say, we've squashed this bug! Since this particular bug also affected other components, all of our tools should now be even more reliable. Work on OS X El Capitan is progressing very well and a first test version will be ready soon. We'll include it in our nightly builds for early testers once available. We would especially like to thank Bruno Bierbaumer for bringing a bug in one of Libmacgpg's subcomponents to our attention which could be abused by a local user to execute shell commands with root privileges (CVE-2014-4677). This security issue has been fixed in GPG Suite 2015.06. Most of our users are already running the latest version of GPG Suite, but everyone who hasn't upated to GPG Suite 2015.06 yet, should update to the latest GPG Suite as soon as possible.

GPG Suite 2015.06 has just been released (June 12, 2015) "We're very happy to announce that we have left our beta phase. The new stable release of GPG Suite is finally ready. In GPG Suite 2015.06 you will find a lot of new features enhancing the usability of our tools, as well as many improvements which contribute to the overall stability and reliability of the entire suite. This release is completely compatible with OS X Yosemite and we have already started working on supporting the just announced OS X El Capitan. To make it even easier for our users to stay up-to-date, we have revamped our update process. Instead of only updating one tool at a time, we're now updating all of our tools at once, when you install an update via our automated update process. A very special thanks goes out to netidee and DuckDuckGo for supporting our work. We hope you like this release as much as we do." Special thanks to DuckDuckGo for helping to keep GPGTools free. ^^
