+Noteworthy changes in version 1.3.2 (2012-05-02)
+ * Remove support for libgpgme-pth. As far as we know, this was never used,
+ and GnuPG is going to use our own npth in the future.
+ * Fix signature summary information for a missing X.509 key.
+ * Fix parsing of dates >= year 2038.
+Noteworthy changes in version 1.3.1 (2011-06-16)
+ * Ported to Windows CE.
+ * Detect GPG versions not supporting ---passwd.
+ * Interface changes relative to the 1.3.0 release:
+ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
+ gpgme_err_code_from_syserror NEW
+ gpgme_err_set_errno NEW
+ gpgme_error_from_errno CHANGED: Return gpgme_error_t (compatible type).
+ gpgme_error_from_syserror NEW
+ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
+Noteworthy changes in version 1.3.0 (2010-01-11)
+ * GPGME does not come with an internal libassuan version anymore.
+ The external libassuan 1.1.0 release or later is required. For
+ application programmers on systems that can resolve inter-library
+ dependencies at runtime, this is a transparent change.
+ * New engine GPGME_PROTOCOL_G13 to support the new g13 tool.
+ * New engine GPGME_PROTOCOL_UISERVER to support UI Servers.
+ * New API to change the passphrase of a key.
+ * Interface changes relative to the 1.2.0 release:

+ gpgme_op_g13_mount NEW.
+ gpgme_g13_result_t NEW.
+ gpgme_op_passwd_start NEW.
+ gpgme_op_passwd NEW.
+ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
+Noteworthy changes in version 1.2.0 (2009-06-18)
+ * New encryption flag GPGME_ENCRYPT_NO_ENCRYPT_TO to disable default
+ recipients.
+ * gpgme_new will fail if gpgme_check_version was not called, or a
+ selftest failed (for example, if -mms-bitfields was not used on
+ MingW32 targets).
+ * New functions gpgme_io_read and gpgme_io_write for use with
+ gpgme_passphrase_cb_t and gpgme_edit_cb_t functions.
+ * New functions gpgme_result_ref and gpgme_result_unref to detach
+ result structures from a context.
+ * New functions gpgme_op_export_keys_start and gpgme_op_export_keys
+ that allow to specify exported keys through gpgme_key_t objects
+ instead of patterns.
+ * New mode of operation gpgme_export_mode_t that allows exporting
+ external keys.
+ * Interface changes relative to the 1.1.7 release:
+ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
+ gpgme_assuan_data_cb_t NEW.
+ gpgme_assuan_inquire_cb_t NEW.
+ gpgme_assuan_status_cb_t NEW.

+ gpgme_op_export_keys NEW.
+ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
+Noteworthy changes in version 1.1.8 (2008-12-08)
+ * SIGPIPE is now again ignored as described in the manual. Fixes
+ regresion introduced with 1.1.6.
+Noteworthy changes in version 1.1.7 (2008-10-17)
+ * Using GPGME_KEYLIST_MODE_LOCAL combined with
+ GPGME_KEYLIST_MODE_EXTERN is now supported; it uses the
+ --locate-keys feature of gpg (>= 2.0.10).
+ * The encoding of gpgme_data_t objects can affect the output encoding
+ of export, sign and encrypt operations now (the same operations
+ that are also affected by the ASCII mode switch). We believe this
+ change in the ABI is innocent enough not to break existing
+ applications (it only affects the S/MIME backend on certain
+ operations).
+ * The reference manual now includes the specification of "The GnuPG
+ UI Server protocol".
+ * A new function gpgme_cancel_async can be used to asynchronously
+ cancel any pending operation at any time, from any thread.
+ * Interface changes relative to the 1.1.6 release:
+ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
+gpgme_op_encrypt CHANGED: Output encoding can affect result.

+gpgme_cancel_async NEW
+ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
+Noteworthy changes in version 1.1.6 (2008-01-04)
+ * Bug fixes for for W32.
+ * A new, experimental (and thus undocumented and potentially
+ unstable) interface for accessing gpg-conf through GPGME has been
+ added.
+ * Interface changes relative to the 1.1.1 release:
+ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
+ gpgme_signature_t EXTENDED: New field chain_model.
+ gpgme_op_getauditlog_start NEW.
+ gpgme_op_getauditlog NEW.
+ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
+Noteworthy changes in version 1.1.5 (2007-07-09)
+ * Bug and portability fixes (mainly for W32).
+Noteworthy changes in version 1.1.4 (2007-03-05)
+ * Detect and bail out on double plaintext messages. This is required
+ so that applications can properly detect the signed parts of a
+ message. Actual there is now a double protection as GnuPG 1.4.7
+ will detect this case too.
+Noteworthy changes in version 1.1.3 (2007-01-29)
+ * Fixed a memory leak in gpgme_data_release_and_get_mem.
+ * Fixed a bug in Windows command line quoting.
+Noteworthy changes in version 1.1.2 (2006-03-02)
+ * Fixed a bug in the W32 glib backend.
+Noteworthy changes in version 1.1.1 (2006-02-23)
+ * Fixed a bug in that the fingerprints of subkeys are not available.
+ * Clarified usage of the SECRET flag in key listings. It is now
+ reset for stub keys.
+ * Reading signature notations and policy URLs on key signatures is
+ supported. They can be found in the new field notations of the
+ gpgme_key_sig_t structure. This has to be enabled with the keylist
+ * A new gpgme_free() function solves the problem of using different
+ allocators in a single program. This function should now be used
+ instead calling free() to release the buffer returned by
+ gpgme_data_release_and_get_mem. It is recommended that you always
+ do this, but it is only necessary on certain platforms, so backwards
+ compatibility is provided. In other words: If free() worked for
+ you before, it will keep working.
+ They are analyzed by the verify handlers and made available in the
+ new PKA_TRUST and PKA_ADDRESS fields of the signature result structure.
+ * Interface changes relative to the 1.1.0 release:
+gpgme_key_sig_t EXTENDED: New field notations.
+gpgme_free NEW
+gpgme_signature_t EXTENDED: New field pka_trust.
+gpgme_signature_t EXTENDED: New field pka_address.
+Noteworthy changes in version 1.1.0 (2005-10-01)
+ * You can now configure the backend engine file name and home
+ directory to be used, as default and per context.
+ * Information about the recipients of an encrypted text is now
+ available at decryption time.
+ * New status GPGME_STATUS_PLAINTEXT. This is analyzed by the decrypt
+ and verify handlers, the information about the plaintext filename,
+ if available is made available in the new field file_name of the
+ respective result structure.
+ * The code for "automagically detecting the thread library" has been
+ removed from libgpgme. It is deprecated since version 0.4.3.
+ Since then, you had to link against libgpgme-pthread for
+ applications using pthread and libgpgme-pth for applications using
+ GNU Pth.
+ The code was removed because it caused compilation problems on
+ systems where the pthread.h header from GNU Pth is available in
+ addition to the system header (FreeBSD 6 and later for example).
+ * "./ --build-w32" does now build gpgme.dll.
+ * [W32] The environment variable GPGME_DEBUG now uses a semicolon as
+ delimiter. The standard install directory is used when locating
+ gpg or gpgsm before finally falling back to the hardwired name.
+ * There is a new flag for keys and subkeys, is_qualified, which
+ indicates if a key can be used for qualified signatures according
+ to local government regulations.
+ * You can associate a filename with a data object using the new
+ function gpgme_data_set_file_name(). This filename will be stored
+ in the output when encrypting or signing the data and will be
+ returned when decrypting or verifying the output data.
+ * You can now set notation data at signature creation with the new
+ function gpgme_sig_notation_add().
+ * Interface changes relative to the 1.0.3 release:
+gpgme_set_engine_info NEW
+gpgme_ctx_get_engine_info NEW
+gpgme_ctx_set_engine_info NEW
+gpgme_recipient_t NEW
+gpgme_decrypt_result_t EXTENDED: New field recipients.
+gpgme_verify_result_t EXTENDED: New fields pubkey_algo, hash_algo.
+gpgme_decrypt_result_t EXTENDED: New field plaintext_filename.
+gpgme_verify_result_t EXTENDED: New field plaintext_filename.
+gpgme_key_t EXTENDED: New field is_qualified.
+gpgme_subkey_t EXTENDED: New field is_qualified.
+gpgme_data_get_file_name NEW
+gpgme_data_set_file_name NEW
+gpgme_sig_notation_flags_t NEW
+gpgme_sig_notation_clear NEW
+gpgme_sig_notation_add NEW
+gpgme_sig_notation_get NEW
+Noteworthy changes in version 1.0.3 (2005-06-20)
+ * Previousy, GPGME would use a default "include certs" of 1. This
+ has been changed. Now GPGME will use the crypto backend engines
+ default unless you set the value with gpgme_set_include_certs()
+ explicitely. A new macro GPGME_INCLUDE_CERTS_DEFAULT can be used
+ as a value to explicitely request the new default behaviour.
+ Because the default changes, this is a slight change of the API
+ semantics. We consider it to be a bug fix.
+ * A bug which made GPGME hang has been fixed. If you have
+ experienced hanging before, please try out this version and let me
+ know if you still experience hanging problems.
+ * Interface changes relative to the 0.9.0 release:
+gpgme_set_include_certs CHANGED DEFAULT
+Noteworthy changes in version 1.0.2 (2004-12-28)
+ * Changed the license of the library to the GNU Lesser General Public
+ License (LGPL), version 2.1 or later.
+Noteworthy changes in version 1.0.1 (2004-10-22)
+ * Only bug fixes.
+Noteworthy changes in version 1.0.0 (2004-09-30)
+ * Version 1.0.0! We are proud to present you with a thoroughly
+ tested and stable version of the GPGME library. A big Thank You!
+ to all the people who made this possible.
+ The development will be branched into a stable 1.x.y series and the
+ head.
+ * The gpgme.m4 macro supports checking the API version. Just prepend
+ it to the required version string, separated by a colon. For
+ example, this release has the version "1:1.0.0". The last release
+ to which this version is (mostly) ABI compatible is "1:0.4.2",
+ which is the default required version.
+Noteworthy changes in version 0.9.0 (2004-06-08)
+ * The type gpgme_key_t has now a new field keylist_mode that contains
+ the keylist mode that was active at the time the key was retrieved.
+ * The type gpgme_decrypt_result_t has a new field "wrong_key_usage"
+ that contains a flag indicating that the key should not have been
+ used for encryption.
+ * Verifying a signature of a revoked key gives the correct result now
+ (GPG_ERR_CERT_REVOKED error code).
+ * Clarified that the error code GPG_ERR_NO_DATA from the decrypt &
+ verify operations still allows you to look at the signature
+ verification result.
+ * Clarified that patterns in keylisting operations have an upper
+ limit, and thus are not suited to list many keys at once by their
+ fingerprint. Also improve the error message if the pattern is too
+ long for the CMS protocol to handle.
+gpgme_key_t EXTENDED: New field keylist_mode.
+gpgme_decrypt_result_t EXTENDED: New field wrong_key_usage.
+Noteworthy changes in version 0.4.7 (2004-04-29)
+ * Correctly initialize the fields expired, revoked, invalid, and
+ disabled in the gpgme_key_t structures.
+ * A bug fix: The flag wrong_key_usage of gpgme_signature_t was
+ accidently of type int instead unsigned int.
+ * Interface changes relative to the 0.4.5 release:
+gpgme_signature_t CHANGED: wrong_key_usage is unsigned int now.
+Noteworthy changes in version 0.4.6 (2004-04-06)
+ * Bug fixes
+Noteworthy changes in version 0.4.5 (2004-03-07)
+ * GPGME is now compiled with LFS (large file support) by default.
+ This means that _all_ programs using GPGME must be compiled with
+ LFS support enabled by default. You can do this easily with
+ autoconf, by using the AC_SYS_LARGEFILE macro. Or you can do this
+ without autoconf by defining the preprocessor symbol
+ _FILE_OFFSET_BITS to 64 (by passing the -D_FILE_OFFSET_BITS=64 to
+ the C compiler command line, or by defining this preprocessor
+ symbol before including any system header files). For more
+ details, read the section on LFS in the manual.
+ Up to now, it was undocumented that GPGME was not using LFS.
+ But the public interfaces use off_t, and file descriptors are
+ exchanged between the application and GPGME. This was an oversight,
+ and bound to cause troubles in the future.
+ Writing GPGME as a dual mode library that seamlessly supports LFS
+ while keeping backwards compatibility is possible, but does not
+ solve the problem: Many applications already expect GPGME to have
+ LFS (they are compiled with off_t being a 64bit value). This is true
+ in particular for the popular Gtk+ and Qt programs.
+ So, although this is an ABI (but not an API) break, we will not
+ change the library version to reflect that. Because the interfaces
+ affected are probably not used yet in any GPGME 0.4 based
+ application, we don't expect any real failures from this change.
+ In fact, applications already using LFS will have some subtle bugs
+ fixed.
+ However, if you encounter an application using GPGME 0.4.x that
+ does _not_ use LFS by default (off_t is a 32bit value), _and_
+ uses at least one of the functions gpgme_data_seek,
+ gpgme_data_new_from_filepart, or a gpgme_data_seek_cb_t with
+ gpgme_data_new_from_cbs, then indeed this library will be ABI
+ incompatible with the program. As said above, we don't believe
+ such a program exists. If we are in error, then you have two
+ options: As a quick hack, you can configure GPGME with the
+ --disable-largefile option. This will revert the change, and GPGME
+ will not use LFS. However, GPGME will be incompatible with
+ programs that expect GPGME to use LFS. All applications are
+ required to use LFS when using GPGME, so this is only good as a
+ temporary local work-around.
+ The other option is to change the versioning of the library and
+ recompile all applications. We have reserved a special version of
+ the library for that, so you can do that without expecting a
+ version clash in the future. Furthermore, everyone who does this
+ will agree on the version to use (this is important for
+ distribution makers). Read the comment in (before
+ LIBGPGME_LT_AGE) if you want to do this. Please don't do this
+ blindly: As stated above, we think it is unlikely this measure is
+ needed. Still, it is there if necessary. If in doubt, contact us
+ and we will give our advise for your specific situation.
+ * New key listing mode GPGME_KEYLIST_MODE_VALIDATE for validation of
+ the listed keys.
+ * New interface gpgme_cancel() that can be used to cancel
+ asynchronous operations.
+ * Interface changes relative to the 0.4.4 release:
+gpgme_data_seek_cb_t CHANGED: off_t is now a largefile type.
+gpgme_data_seek CHANGED: off_t is now a largefile type.
+gpgme_data_new_from_filepart CHANGED: off_t is now a largefile type.
+gpgme_cancel NEW
+Noteworthy changes in version 0.4.4 (2004-01-12)
+ * The member "class" in gpgme_key_sig_t and gpgme_new_signature_t has
+ been renamed to "sig_class", to avoid clash with C++ compilers. In
+ the C API, the old name "class" has been preserved for backwards
+ compatibility, but is deprecated.
+ * Interface changes relative to the 0.4.3 release:
+gpgme_key_sig_t CHANGED: class deprecated, use new sig_class.
+gpgme_new_signature_t CHANGED: class deprecated, use new sig_class.
+Noteworthy changes in version 0.4.3 (2003-10-06)
+ * libgpgme should not be used for threaded programs anymore. This
+ never worked reliably in all cases, because you had to
+ be careful about the linking order and libtool wouldn't do that for
+ you automatically. Instead, now you have to link against
+ libgpgme-pthread for applications using pthread and libgpgme-pth for
+ applications using GNU Pth.
+ The old code for automagically detecting the thread library is
+ still part of libgpgme, but it is DEPRECATED.
+ * There are new automake macros AM_PATH_GPGME_PTH and
+ AM_PATH_GPGME_PTHREAD, which support checking for thread-enabled
+ versions of GPGME. They define GPGME_PTH_CFLAGS, GPGME_PTH_LIBS,
+ variables of course also include the configuration for the thread
+ package itself. Alternatively, use libtool.
+ * gpgme_strerror_r as a thread safe variant of gpgme_strerror was
+ added.
+ * gpgme-config doesn't support setting the prefix or exec prefix
+ anymore. I don't think it ever worked correctly, and it seems to
+ be pointless.
+ * gpgme_get_key fails with GPG_ERR_AMBIGUOUS_NAME if the key ID
+ provided was not unique, instead returning the first matching key.
+ * gpgme_key_t and gpgme_subkey_t have a new field, can_authenticate,
+ that indicates if the key can be used for authentication.
+ * gpgme_signature_t's status field is now correctly set to an error
+ with error code GPG_ERR_NO_PUBKEY if public key is not found.
+ * gpgme_new_signature_t's class field is now an unsigned int, rather
+ than an unsigned long (the old class field is preserved for
+ backwards compatibility).
+ * A new function gpgme_set_locale() is provided to allow configuring
+ the locale for the crypto backend. This is necessary for text
+ terminals so that programs like the pinentry can be started with
+ the right locale settings for the terminal the application is running
+ on, in case the terminal has different settings than the system
+ default (for example, if it is a remote terminal). You are highly
+ recommended to call the following functions directly after
+ gpgme_check_version:
+ #include <locale.h>
+ setlocale (LC_ALL, "");
+ gpgme_set_locale (NULL, LC_CTYPE, setlocale (LC_CTYPE, NULL));
+ gpgme_set_locale (NULL, LC_MESSAGES, setlocale (LC_MESSAGES, NULL));
+ GPGME can not do this for you, as setlocale is not thread safe, and
+ there is no alternative.
+ * The signal action for SIGPIPE is now set to SIG_IGN by
+ gpgme_check_version, instead the first time a crypto engine is
+ started (which is not well defined).
+ * In the output of gpgme_hash_algo_name, change RMD160 to RIPEMD160,
+ TIGER to TIGER192, CRC32-RFC1510 to CRC32RFC1510, and CRC24-RFC2440
+ to CRC24RFC2440. For now, these strings can be used as the MIC
+ parameter for PGP/MIME (if appropriately modified).
+ * Interface changes relative to the 0.4.2 release:
+gpgme_strerror_t NEW
+gpgme_get_key CHANGED: Fails correctly if key ID not unique.
+gpgme_key_t EXTENDED: New field can_authenticate.
+gpgme_subkey_t EXTENDED: New field can_authenticate.
+gpgme_new_signature_t CHANGED: New type for class field.
+gpgme_set_locale NEW
+gpgme_hash_algo_name CHANGED: Slight adjustment of algo names.
+Noteworthy changes in version 0.4.2 (2003-07-30)
+ * Allow gpg-error to be in non-standard place when linking the test suite.
+ * Configure will fail now if gpg-error can not be found.
+ * Fixed initialized memory backed data objects for writing, which
+ caused the test program to crash (but only on Mac OS, surprisingly).
+ * Eliminate use of C99 constructs.
+ * Small improvements to the manual.
+Noteworthy changes in version 0.4.1 (2003-06-06)
+ This is the release that 0.4.0 should have been. There are many
+ interface changes, please see below for the details. The changes are
+ sometimes the result of new functionality, but more often express a
+ paradigm shift. Others are an overdue cleanup to get GPGME in line
+ with the GNU coding standards and to make the interface more
+ self-consistent. Here is an overview on the changes:
+ All types have been renamed to conform to the GNU coding standards,
+ most of the time by keeping the whole name in lowercase and inserting
+ underscores between words.
+ All operations consistently only accept input parameters in their
+ invocation function, and return only an error code directly. Further
+ information about the result of the operation has to be retrieved
+ afterwards by calling one of the result functions. This unifies the
+ synchronous and the asynchronous interface.
+ The error values have been completely replaced by a more
+ sophisticated model that allows GPGME to transparently and accurately
+ report all errors from the other GnuPG components, irregardless of
+ process boundaries. This is achieved by using the library
+ libgpg-errors, which is shared by all GnuPG components. This library
+ is now required for GPGME.
+ The results of all operations are now provided by pointers to C
+ structs rather than by XML structs or in other ways.
+ Objects which used to be opaque (for example a key) are now pointers
+ to accessible structs, so no accessor functions are necessary.
+ Backward compatibility is provided where it was possible without too
+ much effort and did not collide with the overall sanitization effort.
+ However, this is only for ease of transition. NO DEPRECATED FUNCTION
+ Recommendations how to replace deprecated or removed functionality
+ can be found within the description of each change.
+ What follows are all changes to the interface and behaviour of GPGME
+ in detail.
+ * If gpgme.h is included in sources compiled by GCC 3.1 or later,
+ deprecated attributes will warn about use of obsolete functions and
+ type definitions. You can suppress these warnings by passing
+ -Wno-deprecated-declarations to the gcc command.
+ * The following types have been renamed. The old types are still
+ available as aliases, but they are deprecated now:
+ Old name: New name:
+ GpgmeCtx gpgme_ctx_t
+ GpgmeData gpgme_data_t
+ GpgmeError gpgme_error_t
+ GpgmeDataEncoding gpgme_data_encoding_t
+ GpgmeSigStat gpgme_sig_stat_t
+ GpgmeSigMode gpgme_sig_mode_t
+ GpgmeAttr gpgme_attr_t
+ GpgmeValidity gpgme_validity_t
+ GpgmeProtocol gpgme_protocol_t
+ GpgmeKey gpgme_key_t
+ GpgmePassphraseCb gpgme_passphrase_cb_t
+ GpgmeProgressCb gpgme_progress_cb_t
+ GpgmeIOCb gpgme_io_cb_t
+ GpgmeRegisterIOCb gpgme_register_io_cb_t
+ GpgmeRemoveIOCb gpgme_remove_io_cb_t
+ GpgmeEventIO gpgme_event_io_t
+ GpgmeEventIOCb gpgme_event_io_cb_t
+ GpgmeIOCbs gpgme_io_cbs
+ GpgmeDataReadCb gpgme_data_read_cb_t
+ GpgmeDataWriteCb gpgme_data_write_cb_t
+ GpgmeDataSeekCb gpgme_data_seek_cb_t
+ GpgmeDataReleaseCb gpgme_data_release_cb_t
+ GpgmeDataCbs gpgme_data_cbs_t
+ GpgmeTrustItem gpgme_trust_item_t
+ GpgmeStatusCode gpgme_status_code_t
+ * gpgme_error_t is now identical to gpg_error_t, the error type
+ provided by libgpg-error. More about using libgpg-error with GPGME
+ can be found in the manual. All error symbols have been removed!
+ * All functions and types in libgpg-error have been wrapped in GPGME.
+ The new types are gpgme_err_code_t and gpgme_err_source_t. The new
+ functions are gpgme_err_code, gpgme_err_source, gpgme_error,
+ gpgme_err_make, gpgme_error_from_errno, gpgme_err_make_from_errno,
+ gpgme_err_code_from_errno, gpgme_err_code_to_errno,
+ gpgme_strsource.
+ * GPGME_ATTR_IS_SECRET is not anymore representable as a string.
+ * GnuPG 1.2.2 is required. The progress callback is now also invoked
+ for encrypt, sign, encrypt-sign, decrypt, verify, and
+ decrypt-verify operations. For verify operations on detached
+ signatures, the progress callback is invoked for both the detached
+ signature and the plaintext message, though.
+ * gpgme_passphrase_cb_t has been changed to not provide a complete
+ description, but the UID hint, passphrase info and a flag
+ indicating if this is a repeated attempt individually, so the user
+ can compose his own description from this information.
+ The passphrase is not returned as a C string, but must be written
+ to a file descriptor directly. This allows for secure passphrase
+ entries.
+ The return type has been changed to gpgme_error_t value. This
+ allowed to remove the gpgme_cancel function; just return
+ the error code GPG_ERR_CANCELED in the passphrase callback directly.
+ * gpgme_edit_cb_t has been changed to take a file descriptor argument.
+ The user is expected to write the response to the file descriptor,
+ followed by a newline.
+ * The recipients interface has been removed. Instead, you use
+ NULL-terminated lists of keys for specifying the recipients of an
+ encryption operation. Use the new encryption flag
+ GPGME_ENCRYPT_ALWAYS_TRUST if you want to override the validity of
+ the keys (but note that in general this is not a good idea).
+ This change has been made to the prototypes of gpgme_op_encrypt,
+ gpgme_op_encrypt_start, gpgme_op_encrypt_sign and
+ gpgme_op_encrypt_sign_start.
+ The export interface has been changed to use pattern strings like
+ the keylist interface. Thus, new functions gpgme_op_export_ext and
+ gpgme_op_export_ext_start have been added as well. Now the
+ prototypes of gpgme_op_export_start and gpgme_op_export finally
+ make sense.
+ * gpgme_op_verify and gpgme_op_decrypt_verify don't return a status
+ summary anymore. Use gpgme_get_sig_status to retrieve the individual
+ stati.
+ * gpgme_io_cb_t changed from a void function to a function returning
+ a gpgme_error_t value. However, it will always return 0, so you
+ can safely ignore the return value.
+ * A new I/O callback event GPGME_EVENT_START has been added. The new
+ requirement is that you must wait until this event until you are
+ allowed to call the I/O callback handlers previously registered for
+ this context operation. Calling I/O callback functions for this
+ context operation before the start event happened is unsafe because
+ it can lead to race conditions in a multi-threaded environment.
+ * The idle function feature has been removed. It was not precisely
+ defined in a multi-threaded environment and is obsoleted by the
+ user I/O callback functions. If you still need a simple way to
+ call something while waiting on one or multiple asynchronous
+ operations to complete, don't set the HANG flag in gpgme_wait (note
+ that this will return to your program more often than the idle
+ function did).
+ * gpgme_wait can return NULL even if hang is true, if an error
+ occurs. In that case *status contains the error code.
+ * gpgme_get_engine_info was radically changed. Instead an XML
+ string, an info structure of the new type gpgme_engine_info_t is
+ returned. This makes it easier and more robust to evaluate the
+ information in an application.
+ * The new function gpgme_get_protocol_name can be used to convert a
+ gpgme_protocol_t value into a string.
+ * The status of a context operation is not checked anymore. Starting
+ a new operation will silently cancel the previous one. Calling a
+ function that requires you to have started an operation before without
+ doing so is undefined.
+ * The FPR argument to gpgme_op_genkey was removed. Instead, use the
+ gpgme_op_genkey_result function to retrieve a gpgme_genkey_result_t
+ pointer to a structure which contains the fingerprint. This also
+ works with gpgme_op_genkey_start. The structure also provides
+ other information about the generated keys.
+ So, instead:
+ char *fpr;
+ err = gpgme_op_genkey (ctx, NULL, NULL, &fpr);
+ if (!err && fpr)
+ printf ("%s\n", fpr);
+ you should now do:
+ gpgme_genkey_result_t result;
+ err = gpgme_op_genkey (ctx, NULL, NULL);
+ if (!err)
+ {
+ result = gpgme_op_genkey_result (ctx);
+ if (result->fpr)
+ printf ("%s\n", result->fpr);
+ }
+ * The new gpgme_op_import_result function provides detailed
+ information about the result of an import operation in
+ gpgme_import_result_t and gpgme_import_status_t objects.
+ Thus, the gpgme_op_import_ext variant is deprecated.
+ * The new gpgme_op_sign_result function provides detailed information
+ about the result of a signing operation in gpgme_sign_result_t,
+ gpgme_invalid_key_t and gpgme_new_signature_t objects.
+ * The new gpgme_op_encrypt_result function provides detailed
+ information about the result of an encryption operation in
+ a GpgmeEncryptResult object.
+ * The new gpgme_op_decrypt_result function provides detailed
+ information about the result of a decryption operation in
+ a GpgmeDecryptResult object.
+ * The new gpgme_op_verify_result function provides detailed
+ information about the result of an verify operation in
+ a GpgmeVerifyResult object. Because of this, the GPGME_SIG_STAT_*
+ values, gpgme_get_sig_status, gpgme_get_sig_ulong_attr,
+ gpgme_get_sig_string_attr and gpgme_get_sig_key are now deprecated,
+ and gpgme_get_notation is removed.
+ * GpgmeTrustItem objects have now directly accessible data, so the
+ gpgme_trust_item_get_string_attr and gpgme_trust_item_get_ulong_attr
+ accessor functions are deprecated. Also, reference counting is
+ available through gpgme_trust_item_ref and gpgme_trust_item_unref
+ (the gpgme_trust_item_release alias for the latter is deprecated).
+ * Keys are not cached internally anymore, so the force_update argument
+ to gpgme_get_key has been removed.
+ * GpgmeKey objects have now directly accessible data so the
+ gpgme_key_get_string_attr, gpgme_key_get_ulong_attr,
+ gpgme_key_sig_get_string_attr and gpgme_key_sig_get_ulong_attr
+ functions are deprecated. Also, gpgme_key_release is now
+ deprecated. The gpgme_key_get_as_xml function has been dropped.
+ * Because all interfaces using attributes are deprecated, the
+ GpgmeAttr data type is also deprecated.
+ * The new gpgme_op_keylist_result function provides detailed
+ information about the result of a key listing operation in
+ a GpgmeKeyListResult object.
+ * Now that each function comes with its own result retrieval
+ interface, the generic gpgme_get_op_info interface is not useful
+ anymore and dropped.
+ * The type and mode of data objects is not available anymore.
+ * Interface changes relative to the 0.4.0 release:

+ * Bug fixes.
+Noteworthy changes in version 0.3.10 (2002-09-02)
+ * Setting the signing keys for the CMS protocol does now work.

+ * A spec file for creating RPMs has been added.
+ * An experimental interface to GnuPG's --edit-key functionality is
+ introduced, see gpgme_op_edit.

+ and Pth.
+Noteworthy changes in version 0.3.6 (2002-05-03)
+ * All error output of the gpgsm backend is send to the bit bucket.
+ * The signature verification functions are extended. Instead of
+ always returning GPGME_SIG_STATUS_GOOD, the functions new codes for
+ expired signatures. 2 new functions may be used to retrieve more
+ detailed information like the signature expiration time and a
+ validity information of the key without an extra key looking.
+ * The current passphrase callback and progress meter callback can be

+gpgme_get_protocol NEW
+Noteworthy changes in version 0.3.5 (2002-04-01)
+ * gpgme_op_encrypt can be called with RECIPIENTS being 0. In this
+ case, symmetric encryption is performed. Note that this requires a
+ passphrase from the user.
+ * More information is returned for X.509 certificates.
+ * Interface changes relative to the 0.3.4 release:
+gpgme_op_encrypt EXTENDED: Symmetric encryption possible
+Noteworthy changes in version 0.3.4 (2002-03-04)
+ * gpgme_op_encrypt does now fail with GPGME_Invalid_Recipients if
+ some recipients have been invalid, whereas earlier versions
+ succeeded in this case. The plaintext is still encrypted for all valid
+ recipients, so the application might take this error as a hint that
+ the ciphertext is not usable for all requested recipients.
+ Information about invalid recipients is available with gpgme_get_op_info.
+ * gpgme_op_verify now allows to pass an uninitialized data object as
+ its plaintext argument to check for normal and cleartext
+ signatures. The plaintext is then returned in the data object.
+ * New interfaces gpgme_set_include_certs and gpgme_get_include_certs
+ to set and get the number of certifications to include in S/MIME
+ signed messages.
+ * New interfaces gpgme_op_encrypt_sign and gpgme_op_encrypt_sign_start
+ to encrypt and sign a message in a combined operation.
+ * New interface gpgme_op_keylist_ext_start to search for multiple patterns.
+ * gpgme_key_get_ulong_attr supports the GPGME_ATTR_EXPIRE attribute.
+ * Interface changes relative to the 0.3.3 release:
+gpgme_op_encrypt CHANGED: Can fail with GPGME_Invalid_Recipients
+gpgme_op_verify EXTENDED: Accepts uninitialized text argument

+Noteworthy changes in version 0.3.3 (2002-02-12)
+ * Fix the Makefile in jnlib.
+ * Fix the test suite (hopefully). It should clean up all its state
+ with `make check' now.
+Noteworthy changes in version 0.3.2 (2002-02-10)
+ * Remove erroneous dependency on libgcrypt in jnlib.
+Noteworthy changes in version 0.3.1 (2002-02-09)
+ * There is a Texinfo manual documenting the API.
+ * The gpgme_set_keylist_mode function returns an error, and changed
+ its meaning. It is no longer usable to select between normal and
+ fast mode (newer versions of GnuPG will always be fast), but
+ selects between local keyring, remote keyserver, or both.
+ For this, two new macros are defined, GPGME_KEYLIST_MODE_LOCAL
+ and GPGME_KEYLIST_MODE_EXTERN. To make it possible to modify the
+ current setting, a fucntion gpgme_get_keylist_mode was added to
+ retrieve the current mode.
+ * gpgme_wait accepts a new argument STATUS to return the error status
+ of the operation on the context. Its definition is closer to
+ waitpid() now than before.
+ * The LENGTH argument to gpgme_data_new_from_filepart changed its
+ type from off_t to the unsigned size_t.
+ * The R_HD argument to the GpgmePassphraseCb type changed its type
+ from void* to void**.
+ * New interface gpgme_op_trustlist_end() to match
+ gpgme_op_keylist_end().
+ * The CryptPlug modules have been renamed to gpgme-openpgp and
+ gpgme-smime, and they are installed in pkglibdir by `make install'.
+ * An idle function can be registered with gpgme_register_idle().
+ * The GpgSM backend supports key generation with gpgme_op_genkey().
+ * Interface changes relative to the 0.3.0 release:
+gpgme_data_new_from_filepart CHANGED: Type of LENGTH is size_t.
+GpgmePassphraseCb CHANGED: Type of R_HD is void **.
+gpgme_wait CHANGED: New argument STATUS.
+gpgme_set_keylist_mode CHANGED: Type of return value is GpgmeError.
+ The function has a new meaning!
+gpgme_get_keylist_mode NEW
+gpgme_op_trustlist_next NEW
+GpgmeIdleFunc NEW
+gpgme_register_idle NEW
+Noteworthy changes in version 0.3.0 (2001-12-19)
+ * New interface gpgme_set_protocol() to set the protocol and thus the
+ crypto engine to be used by the context. Currently, the OpenPGP
+ and the CMS protocols are supported. They are specified by the new
+ preprocessor symbols GPGME_PROTOCOL_OpenPGP and GPGME_PROTOCOL_CMS.
+ A new context uses the OpenPGP engine by default.
+ * gpgme_get_engine_info() returns information for all crypto engines
+ compiled into the library. The XML format has changed. To
+ reliably get the version of a crypto engine, the <version> tag
+ after the appropriate <protocol> tag has to be looked for.
+ * New interface gpgme_engine_check_version(), obsoleting
+ gpgme_check_engine(). Check the version of all engines you are
+ supporting in your software.
+ * GpgmeKey lists the user ids in the order as they are returned by
+ GnuPG, first the primary key with index 0, then the sub-user ids.
+ * New operation gpgme_op_decrypt_verify() to decrypt and verify
+ signatures simultaneously.
+ * The new interface gpgme_op_keylist_end() terminates a pending
+ keylist operation. A keylist operation is also terminated when
+ gpgme_op_keylist_next() returns GPGME_EOF.
+ * GPGME can be compiled without GnuPG being installed (`--with-gpg=PATH'),
+ cross-compiled, or even compiled without support for GnuPG
+ (`--without-gpg').
+ * GPGME can be compiled with support for GpgSM (GnuPG for S/MIME,
+ `--with-gpgsm=PATH'). It is enabled by default if the `gpgsm' is found
+ in the path, but it can also be compiled without support for GpgSM
+ (`--without-gpgsm').
+ * CryptPlug modules for GPGME are included and can be enabled at
+ configure time (`--enable-gpgmeplug'). There is one module which
+ uses the GnuPG engine (`gpgmeplug') and one module which uses the
+ GpgSM engine (`gpgsmplug').
+ * Interface changes relative to the latest 0.2.x release:
+gpgme_key_get_as_xml CHANGED: Sub-user ids reversed in order.
+gpgme_key_get_string_attr CHANGED: User ids reversed in order.
+gpgme_key_get_ulong_attr CHANGED: User ids reversed in order.

+ parameter needed for MOSS.
+ * New functions gpgme_get_armor and gpgme_get_textmode.
+ * The usual bug fixes and some minor functionality improvements.
+ * Added a simple encryption component for MS-Windows; however the
+ build procedure might have some problems.
+Noteworthy changes in version 0.2.2 (2001-06-12)
+ * Implemented a key cache.
+ * Fixed a race condition under W32 and some other bug fixes.
+Noteworthy changes in version 0.2.1 (2001-04-02)
+ * Changed debug output and GPGME_DEBUG variable (gpgme/debug.c)
+ * Handle GnuPG's new key capabilities output and support revocation
+ et al. attributes
+ * Made the W32 support more robust.
