Software update: GPG Suite 2018.5




GPG Suite aims to enable easy installation of GnuPG and related tools on the macOS platform. With GnuPG you can secure communication flows and data with encryption and digital signatures. It supports both OpenPGP and s / mime standards. The developers of GPG Suite have released version 2018.5, where we should note that the macOS Mail plug-in with the name GPG Mail is no longer offered for free and now requires a license after the trial period of thirty days. It is possible to use the other components in the suite without a license, by removing GPGMail. The changes to this edition are as follows:
