Werner Koch wk at
Wed Dec 18 15:05:38 CET 2013

What's New

* Fixed the RSA Key Extraction via Low-Bandwidth Acoustic
Cryptanalysis attack as described by Genkin, Shamir, and Tromer.
See <>. [CVE-2013-4576]

* Put only the major version number by default into armored output.

* Do not create a trustdb file if --trust-model=always is used.

* Print the keyid for key packets with --list-packets.

* Changed modular exponentiation algorithm to recover from a small
performance loss due to a change in 1.4.14.
