Hope this is all right here. Maybe "Discuss OS X Audio in general and anything that doesn't fit elsewhere" doesn't quite cover it . Apologies for posting if not.
I just wondered if anyone knew anything about the current state of GnuPG for Mac.
On the main GnuPG site the current version is 1.4.9:
But MacGPG only has a compiled binary for 1.4.8:
Now I haven't got the developer tools currently installed, otherwise I'd compile 1.4.9 just to be on the safe side. I'm not sure whether it's worth installing them just for this. So - does anyone know if there are any problems with 1.4.8 that mean it positively shouldn't be used? There are some pretty well-informed people here, and I'm betting someone like Mr Mathis, for example, might well know.
 The only positively audio connection I could imagine here is if someone on a Mac needed to send audio information to Stephen and encrypt it with his GPG key, and I can't claim I need to do that.

Hmmm. A bit more searching and I found out some more. Apparently, 1.4.9 isSo - does anyone know if there are any problems with 1.4.8 that mean it positively shouldn't be used?
http://lists.gnupg.org/pipermail/gnupg- ... 00272.htmla maintenance release to fix a possible vulnerability introduced with 1.4.8.
So I suppose there's no positive reason not to use 1.4.8. Still, I reckon I'll install the tools and build 1.4.9 given that 1.4.8 is possibly problematic.
