Towards Sequoia v1.0

For the past few weeks, Sequoia has been in a feature freeze as we make final preparations for the 1.0 release. This is an exciting time for us.

And, we hope that a 1.0 release will generate more interest in Sequoia and, consequently, more opportunities to collaborate with other projects.

Even though the launch didn’t receive much media attention, 700 people have already verified their keys in the 48 hours since the announcement.

The Seedling Sees the Light of Day

The Sequoia team proudly presents the first release of a new, cool OpenPGP implementation. On October 16, 2017, we made the first commit to the Sequoia repository. Just over a year and a thousand commits later, Sequoia’s low-level API is nearly feature complete, and is already usable. For instance, a port of the p≡p engine to Sequoia is almost finished, and the code is significantly simpler than the version using the current OpenPGP library.
