Announcing the release of a more secure Python wrapper for GnuPG on PyPI.


About this release
- ------------------

This is the first stable release of a module (named 'gnupg' on PyPI)[0], which
originated as a fork of python-gnupg.[1] Several problems were found with the
upstream version, including a security vulnerability triggered by unvalidated
user input, and when used within networked code, can lead to remote arbitrary
code execution. Full notes of the audit can be found in the docs/ directory of
the git repo [2] and as orgmode→html [3] in the online documentation.

The new version [4] is incompatible with the old version, though the changes
required to upgrade for software depending on the old version should be
slight. Not to mention, the module is now extensively documented,[5] and
developed openly. It was downloaded nearly 1000 times on the first day it was
uploaded to PyPI.

To install:
$ [sudo] pip install gnupg
