Source code releases

These are the canonical release forms of GnuPG. To use them you need to build the binary version from the provided source code. For Unix systems this is the standard way of installing software. For GNU/Linux distributions are commonly used (e.g. Debian, Fedora, RedHat, or Ubuntu) which may already come with a directly installable packages. However, these version may be older so that building from the source is often also a good choice. Some knowledge on how to compile and install software is required.

The table lists the different GnuPG packages, followed by required libraries, required tools, and optional software.

Remarks:

GnuPG binary releases

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