EncryptPad, a free open source project for privacy and security, today announced the general availability of beta version 0.5.0.0, a community driven text editor facilitating symmetric encryption of text and binary files that implements the OpenPGP protocol.

The main purpose of this release is to add ASCII-armor and implement remaining GnuPG algorithms. There are also an improvement in the build configuration, updated dependencies and bug fixes.

Release notes:

* ASCII armor
* Added cipher algorithms: CAMELLIA128, CAMELLIA192, CAMELLIA256, TWOFISH
* Added S2K digest algorithms: SHA384, SHA512, SHA224
* Added compression algorithm: BZIP2
* Botan has been updated to version 2.13
* Translation fixes for context menu
* New Python build system ported from Botan
* Bug fix: MDC failure was not reported when opening files
* Bug fix: the special case in which the last partial packet was smaller than 5 bytes was not handled correctly
* Bug fix: --key-file-length parameter was broken in CLI

I would like to thank contributors, package maintainers and community
for making this release possible.

This release is dedicated to Kostya Bolenko. R.I.P. dear friend.

Thanks so much for keeping this project going.

I hesitate to ask if you could offer some more key file sizes on a future release?

Again, thanks!!
