30 ** Source code releases
31
32    These are the canonical release forms of GnuPG.  To use them you
33    need to build the binary version from the provided source code.
34    For Unix systems this is the standard way of installing software.
35    For GNU/Linux distributions are commonly used (e.g. Debian, Fedora,
36    RedHat, or Ubuntu) which may already come with a directly
37    installable packages.  However, these version may be older so that
38    building from the source is often also a good choice.  Some
39    knowledge on how to compile and install software is required.
40
41    The table lists the different GnuPG packages, followed by required
42    libraries, required tools, optional software, and legacy versions
43    of GnuPG.  For end-of-life dates see further down.

67    Remarks:
68
69    - /Pinentry/ is a collection of passphrase entry dialogs which is
70      required for almost all usages of GnuPG.
71
72    - /GPGME/ is the standard library to access GnuPG functions from
73      programming languages.
74
75    - /GPA/ is a graphical frontend to GnuPG.
76
77    - /GnuPG 1.4/ is the old, single binary version which still support
78      the unsafe PGP-2 keys.  This branch has no dependencies on the
79      above listed libraries or the Pinentry.  However, it lacks many
80      modern features and will receive only important updates.

89    In general we do not distribute binary releases but leave that to
90    the common Linux distributions.  However, for some operating
91    systems we list pointers to readily installable releases.  We
92    cannot guarantee that the versions offered there are current.  Note
93    also that some of them apply security patches on top of the
94    standard versions but keep the original version number.

117    We announce the end-of-life date for a current stable version at
118    the time a new stable version is released.  We maintain old
119    branches for at least two years.  For GnuPG 2.2 we consider 2.1.0
120    as the birth of this new stable branch.  For the other packages we
121    don't maintain branches and thus there is no end-of-life; always
122    use the latest version.
