It will go back to a single-binary architecture like gpg1 was, but move forward on just about every other issue: * Written in C++ * based on the Botan crypto library instead of libgcrypt * typical library + CLI (with subcommands) architecture * better testing (CI, static analysis) In the beginning, things will be somewhat unstable as I am cleaning up and restructuring the internals completely, but I try to keep every commit a somewhat running version (currently keyserver lookup is broken because I am not registering the root certificate of the keyserver CA - yes, openpgp keyservers have their own self-signed root CA). You can follow the progress on neopg.io and the resources linked from there. I am keen on documenting the changes and the reasons for them as I go along. I am open to suggestions, just open an issue on GitHub. Thanks, Marcus
