Fedora 8 Update: gnupg-1.4.7-10.fc8



--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Fedora Update Notification
FEDORA-2008-3258
2008-05-30 23:45:15
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Name        : gnupg
Product     : Fedora 8
Version     : 1.4.7
Release     : 10.fc8
URL         : http://www.gnupg.org/
Summary     : A GNU utility for secure communication and data storage
Description :
GnuPG (GNU Privacy Guard) is a GNU utility for encrypting data and
creating digital signatures. GnuPG has advanced key management
capabilities and is compliant with the proposed OpenPGP Internet
standard described in RFC2440. Since GnuPG doesn't use any patented
algorithm, it is not compatible with any version of PGP2 (PGP2.x uses
only IDEA for symmetric-key encryption, which is patented worldwide).

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Update Information:

When used to decrypt multiple files in one operation, gnupg would incorrectly
warn about finding multiple plaintexts, even if files contained only one
plaintext as expected.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
ChangeLog:

* Wed Apr 16 2008 Nalin Dahyabhai <nalin redhat com> - 1.4.7-10
- belatedly apply patch from David Shaw to not erroneously fail when asked to
  decrypt multiple files (#234087)
