GnuPG Turns 10

Happy Birthday to the GnuPG team and community. GnuPG turns 10 today! For those caught unaware, GnuPG was designed to be a Free Software implementation of PGP, removing the patented algorithms, such as RSA and IDEA, and replacing them with Free Software algorithms, such as Blowfish and ElGamal. Being a strong advocate of GnuPG and cryptography in general, this is great news. Werner Koch mailed the GnuPG-Announce mailing list, giving a brief history of the project. Worth a read for anyone who uses GPG.
