SignServer 5.2.0.Beta1 release highlights

New Administration Web

The SignServer Administration GUI (AdminGUI) has been replaced with a brand new Administration Web interface, previously only available in SignServer Enterprise. The improved and modern AdminWeb interface eases deploying SignServer by allowing using a Web browser for managing administration tasks instead of the standalone Java desktop application.

PGP Signing Support

In addition to the support of all X.509 based signers, we have now added support for PGP/GPG signing of software release packages and repositories, or for general signing. The new OpenPGP Signer can produce both detached and clear-text signatures. For step-by-step instructions on configuring and using this new signer, see
