What is Gpg4win -34299-beta?

Gpg4win is an installation package for Windows with software tools and manuals for email and file encryption. Gpg4win itself and all tools of Gpg4win are free and open source software. The software mainly uses public-key cryptography for data encryption and digital signatures. The aim of Gpg4win is to keep a Windows installation package up-to-date including the crypto software GnuPG, accompanying tools and documentation.

The build system ("Gpg4win-Builder") allows for easy creation of the gpg4win.exe installer with updated or customized components.
