I'm pleased to announce the 1st beta version of Enigmail 2.0. This marks a major milestone in the development of Enigmail. In the two years since the last major update, we improved and changed quite many things. The code base grew by more than 18%, and another 6% of the code was modified.
New Features since v1.9 ----------------------- * The Encryption and Signing buttons now work for both OpenPGP and S/MIME. Enigmail will chose between S/MIME or OpenPGP depending on whether the keys for all receipients are available for the respective standard. * Support for the Autocrypt standard , which is now enabled by default. * Support for Pretty Easy Privacy (pEp)  is implemented in Enigmail. However, we're not yet ready to enable pEp in the current Beta 1 release. We expect that support for pEp will be enabled in Beta 2 that will follow in ca. 2 weeks. * Support for Web Key Directory (WKD)  is implemented. Enigmail will try to download unavailable keys during message composition from WKD. If you use GnuPG 2.2.x, and your provider supports the Web Key Service protocol , you can also use Enigmail to upload your key to WKD. * The message subject can now be encrypted and replaced with a dummy subject, following the "Memory Hole" standard for protected Email Headers . * The keys on the keyring are automatically refreshed from keyservers at an irregular interval. * Enigmail was turned into a "restartless" addon. That is, once you installed Enigmail 2.0 beta1, subsequent updates will be installed without needing to restart Thunderbird. * Keys are internally addressed using the fingerprint instead of the key ID. Fixed defects ------------- In addition to the above, we fixed quite some defects:<https://sourceforge.net/p/enigmail/bugs/search/?q=status%3Afixed+%26%26+_fixed%3A2.0>.
