Release Notes: This release stops looking for a key file laying beside the Tomb. This cleans the key loading code and encourages users to separate keys from data.

Release Notes: This release fixes a small vulnerability when trying to use keys piped from stdin: they were not correctly processed and left encrypted in RAM (tmpfs).

Release Notes: This release includes bugfixes to error handling, support for multiple and encrypted swap partitions, and qr code engraving. It also includes some minor code refactoring of key loading and loop mount check procedures. The tray app is update to GTK 3, and works simply with a tomb name as an argument. The documentation was updated accordingly.

Release Notes: This release fixes a critical bug affecting Tomb 1.3 which broke backward compatibility with older tombs and invalidates keys created using that version (for details, see KNOWN_BUGS). New features include indexing and search of file contents, engraving of keys into QRCode to backup on paper, and a setkey function to replace the key file locking a tomb with a new one. Symmetric encryption is key files is improved; ciphers can be selected using -o, and AES256 is default. This release restores backward compatibility with all tombs, and users are strongly encouraged to upgrade.

Release Notes: This is a major bugfix release including fixes for advanced functionalities as search/index, KDF key creation against dictionary attacks, and steganographic hiding of keys. It solves a compatibility problem when upgrading from GnuPG 1.4.11 to .12 which prevented keys from opening with the correct password. CLI usage options are made more consistent, and full paths for keys and tombs are supported, plus input of a key file from stdin. A new test suite is included and documentation is updated. All users of version 1.3 are strongly encouraged to upgrade to this release.
