Monkeysign 2.0.1 is a tiny patch release to fix some usage strings and tests with GnuPG 2.x. Hopefully there won't be any more non-critical releases on the 2.0.x branch, but I will keep the liberty of making such releases until Debian jessie enters its freeze phase, as there doesn't seem to be any other LTS consumer at this stage.

Monkeysign is a user-friendly tool to easily and securely exchange OpenPGP key certifications. See the homepage for more information.

To install monkeysign on Debian unstable, simply run:

sudo apt-get install monkeysign

Testing and stable currently have the 1.1 release and will be updated within 10 days to the new 2.0.1 release if no critical bugs are found.

For users of other Linux distributions, use:

git clone git://
cd monkeysign
sudo ./ install --record=install.log
