* New upstream release. No changed patches for cygwin.
Please read the README file:
since it covers requirements, installation, known issues, etc.
You find build instructions for a windows native executable (MinGW) after
unpacking the source (see gnupg-1.2.2.README for details) in:

build/packaging script signed by the cygwin package maintainer of gnupg.
GNU Privacy Guard is GNU's tool for secure communication and data storage.
It can be used to encrypt data and to create digital signatures. GnuPG is
a complete and free replacement for PGP. It includes an advanced key
management facility and is compliant with the proposed OpenPGP Internet
standard as described in RFC 2440.
Primary source for information for gnupg is at http://www.gnupg.org
Some countries have regulations on the use of cryptographics systems; It
may be unlawful to use GnuPG in these countries. Please visit
for more informations concerning this topic.

`gnupg' from the `Utils' category.
