NEW FEATURES IN 6.5.1
I've not been able to find an answer on nai.com, or other PGP
related web sites.. Apparently PGPdisk which was included in
PGP Freeware 6.0.2, is no longer part of the PGP Freeware suite.
Nor can I find it stand alone as Freeware.
Does anyone know what happened to PGPdisk?
Anyone using the PGPdisk portion of PGP Freeware or PGP for
Personal Privacy 6.0.x should use caution when upgrading to
6.5.1, I lost the ability to access my encrypted partition. There is
absolutely no mention of the removal, nor even the existence of
PGPdisk in the 6.5.1 documentation.
Another weirdity, www.pgp.com:8001/freeware, www.pgpi.com, and
www.nai.com still show PGP Freeware 6.0.2 as the current
version. the .SIG file in the 6.5.1 .zip file matched that of "Network
Associates PGP Software Release Key" (8F17 2486 8BD7 90AE
D073 1823 13A0 85FC D77B 2094), yet NAI doesn't seem to have
anything about it on their website.
