GPGPreferences 0.9.2

Reported by Charly | December 20th, 2011 @ 06:52 AM | in 1.0.1 (closed)

If the old GPGTools preference pane version 0.6 is still present in System Preferences, it will not be possible to use GPGPreferences 0.9.2.
I tried with both items, it was possible to load and even view GPGPreferences 0.9.2 only once. It wouldn't load again until GPGTools 0.6 was removed.
If GPGPreferences 0.9.2 could damage the configuration file, it might have been preferable not to release this version at all, in spite of the fact that the warning is clear and there for all to see. Still, hasty users might oversee that warning.
In my system (10.7.2), GPGPreferences 0.9.2 displays correctly my default key as set in my gpg.conf file, as well as the cache value of gpg-agent, as set in gpg-agent.conf.
I think this is great work, and I hope it is a first step to integrate in a future GPGPreferences preference pane all the settings and options that were available in Stéphane Corthésy's GPGPreferences preference pane (in fact, a 32bit application called GnuPG) version 1.2.2 (screen capture attached). Stéphane had already started to work an a new comprehensive release that remained in alpha state.
I know this is not critical, and that you have to use your limited number of developers according to more pressing needs. I can't help, I have no code writing skills.
By the way, I am still using 1.2.2 that will run only if gpg is installed, together with gpg2 or not. If only gpg2 is installed, version 1.2.2 will crash.
I realize this ticket is too long, please edit it as you best understand.
