It adds a bunch of great features like tabs, anonymous chat that never logs anything, and better command line support.

OpenPGP in Your Pocket

"Access to the smart card reader on the Librem 5 is something we at Purism have been looking forward to for a long time. That day is finally here..."

It is too easy to block central services, not only in Iran (currently happening) but many other countries increasingly attempt to block and succeed in doing so. The problem is real. VPNs help but make things more complex and costly. Centralization has real human-rights costs.

@musicmatze It's literally just a parody on this article

With that background maybe it doesn't sound as shitty ;)

@hko ha, yes I had to work on a new release because the latest stable version was totally broken in macOS Big Sur.

As for as Sequoia, I'd actually love to replace most of the subprocess calls to gpg with johnnycanencrypt, @kushal's python library that uses Sequoia under the hood github.com/kushaldas/johnnycan

@micahflee @kushal right, that makes a lot of sense for a python based tool!
orthogonally, it seems to me there are lots of higher level questions in the "secure email" space that we'd love to hear your thoughts about. for the longest time we've been limited by how hard (and brittle) it was to use OpenPGP functionality as a library, to build higher order tooling. now that's no longer the case and a lot of possibilities are opening up.

If I'm reading this right, (inlucding sq) will be part of Ubuntu Hirsute Hippo (21.04), which will be released in a few months! bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+sou

Okay, so – the situation:

I basically got the 1.0 ports for sequoia and its bindings done, but the test suite doesn't work out of the box on BSD and when I fix that, some tests just run infinitely long.

Arranged for a nice person from the sequoia community to help me debug this tomorrow because we might be able to fix it with port-level patches and I *really* want to make sure a 1.0 released into the official ports/pkg collection isn't broken somehow.

I consider Sequoia-PGP an incredibly interesting project and I look forward to follow its development and hopefully its broader adoption.

@hko oh this is cool! I've been quite busy and ignoring everything in OpenPGP-land but I should definitely spend some time on this

@micahflee sending you email resulted in at least a temporary failure yesterday :-/ - was trying to point you at gitlab.com/hkos/tb-openpgp-cer (as a followup to my mail from the 13th)

The IETF OpenPGP working group has been reopened and we have a concrete plan to get a crypto-refresh out the door!

Is there reason to believe that we'll succeed this time? I think so. A number of new players (not only Sequoia) have joined the OpenPGP ecosystem over the past few years, and they all seem willing to work together to push the standard forward.

We released 'sq', 's CLI. Read about it here: sequoia-pgp.org/blog/2021/01/2 . You can also get it from crates.io with a simple `cargo install sequoia-sq`.

Today I added certification support (more commonly called "key signing") to : 'sq certify meykey yourkey "You <you@example.org>"'. gitlab.com/sequoia-pgp/sequoia

At the heart of the problem, there is often a problem.

People that control technology routinely undermine the privacy freedoms of the public as they become entranced by shiny new things and dollar signs.

When you can, develop smaller tech.

Always strive for ethical tech.

Consider placing user needs above your own. If you can't, you might not be making ethical decisions.
