GPA 0.9.8 released

We are pleased to announce GPA version 0.9.8.

GPA is a graphical frontend for the GNU Privacy Guard (GnuPG). GPA can
be used for most operations supported by GnuPG using either the OpenPGP
or the S/MIME protocols. A smartcard manager and a generic user
interface server are included as well.

Noteworthy changes in version 0.9.8 (2015-09-09)

* Does start with the clipboard view after a key has been created.

* Limit the size of dialogs by truncating too long user ids.

* Make the window frame's close button work as expected.

* With a decent version of libgpgme the key algorithm and size is
shown using the GnuPG 2.1 format.
