GnuPG version

... It's at 1.4.7 now, not 1.4.6... Someone needs to update the version in the next portable compilation.

Thanks.

Yes and No

Yes, I'm aware, but only 1.4.6 was available from the GNU for Windows at the time of release.

No, GPG won't be included in the next release, it will be switching to an add-on. So, you'll be able to grab a regular copy of Mozilla Thunderbird, Portable Edition and then install Enigmail and add on GPG. Enigmail will be a regular extension install as with standard Thunderbird. GPG will be an add-on for Thunderbird Portable shipped as a PAF package for easy installation.

This is due to Mozilla's guidelines as a part of the licensing agreement.

Cool

Are there any plans on doing the same for Abiword plugins? I would love having them in my Data folder or as .paf's.

Probably Not

AbiWord's plugins are pretty easy to install on their own. The installer works with AbiWord Portable since I changed the directory layout over a year ago. But, I'm gonna take a look at it and see if there's an easier way to point it to the right place.

They don't work from the data folder and would need to be moved back and forth to work right. I don't think there's enough benefit from doing this versus the effort and slower startup especially since if you had to reinstall AbiWord Portable with your favorite plugins later it would be very easy.

OK

I thought about it myself and realised that it might not be worth all the effort.
Don't spend too much of your time & brain juice on this matter...;)
There are more important things to do here that some plugins.

Since when? I've been on the GPG and Enigmail mailing lists and have never heard of this. Werner Koch already refuses to work on W32 builds beyond security updates anyway.

Unrelated

This is unrelated to GPG and Enigmail themselves. What I'm saying is that as part of the licensing agreement with Mozilla, the package of Mozilla Thunderbird, Portable Edition with GPG and Enigmail pre-installed is going away. It'll just be the base package. You can add Enigmail to Thunderbird Portable in the usual way (installing an extension). You can add GPG to it as a pre-packaged PAF that will place GPG in a place Thunderbird Portable can find it.

This has to do with licensing and Mozilla. It's not related to anything that would be discussed in relation to GPG or Enigmail development.

You made it sound like GPG

You made it sound like GPG would be like Enigmail, installed via xpi (i.e. add-on).

Anyway, simple binary replacement will suffice for upgrading (for those who didn't already know).
