>MD-160 and TIGER. Easy implementation of new algorithms

>German, Italian, Russian and Spanish language support. 
>Online help system Optional anonymous message receivers.

>Supported Systems 
>GnuPG works fine on GNU/Linux with x86, alpha, sparc64, 
>m68k or powerpc CPUs. (x86 is my primary development 
>system, the other CPUs are only checked from time to time) 
>It compiles okay on GNU/Hurd but because Mach has no 
>random device, it should not be used for real work. It should 
>be easy to add the random device driver from Linux to the 
>Hurd - Anyone? 
>FreeBSD with x86 CPU works fine. OpenBSD works fine 
>(x86 CPU?). 
>GnuPG compiles and runs on many more systems, but due 
>to the lack of a good random number source, it should not be 
>used on these systems. I have reports on these systems: 
>HPUX v9.x and v10.x with HPPA CPU, IRIX v6.3 with MIPS 
>R10000 CPU, SunOS, Solaris on sparc and x86, Windoze 95 
>and WNT with x86 CPUs.
