RNP is a set of OpenPGP (RFC4880) tools that works on Linux, macOS, Windows and *BSD built with C++.
librnp is the library used by RNP for all OpenPGP functions, useful
for developers to build against, different from GPGME.
Currently supported platforms:
Ubuntu 14.04 LTS, 16.04 LTS, 18.04
Upcoming supported platforms:
Debian 8, 9
OpenSUSE Leap 42.2, 42.3
RNP follows the semantic versioning syntax.
The output of
rnp --version contains the
git hash of
the version the binary was built from, which value is generated when
cmake runs. Consequently, a release tarball generated with
dist will contain this hash version.
The first version of rnp started at
0.8.0 to indicate its development
completeness (or lack thereof).
RNP originated as an attempt to modernize the NetPGP codebase originally created by Alistair Crooks of NetBSD in 2016. RNP has been heavily rewritten, and carries minimal if any code from the original codebase.
