Yes, I can. In fact, I am patching 2.6.1 up to 2.6.2 as I write this
letter. There _will_ be a 2.6.2 release, although I cannot confirm
the date it will be released. Most likely, it will not be released
for at least a week, possibly longer than that, depending on testing
results. Official notice will be sent out when the release occurs.
Actually, the code will still not _generate_ 2048-bit keys, but it
will accept them properly. In the near future PGP will most likely
generate keys that size.
