GPG Suite (formerly GPGTools Installer) is an open source initiative to bring OpenPGP to Apple OS X. The project originated from efforts to revamp GPGMail development in 2010. The personal privacy is one of the most underestimated goods everyone of us has. By encrypting your data before sending them over the internet you prevent others from reading them during the delivery process. Where the "others" can not only be negligible hackers but more important criminal individuals, business companies or even governments interested in your personal information for various reasons some of them you can't even imagine. Another point is the origin of information. Every piece of information has its source that inseparably belongs to it. The source of an information is almost as important as the information itself. By using GPGTools the receiver of an email or file can be sure the information has been sent by only you. He even can tell if the content has been altered on its way through the internet and is therefore not valid for you. PGP messages cannot be faked.
What's new in this version:
In the 6th beta of GPG Suite we've updated gnupg to version 2.0.27 and fixed some minor bugs.
The workaround first released in Beta 5 for smart card support under Yosemite seems to be working quite well and we haven't heard of any new problems.
We encourage all of our users to install this release.
GPG Suite Beta 6 runs on OS X 10.6 and newer.
