Hello! I’ve just updated from gpg4win v2.3.4 and found that I can’ decrypt my emails anymore, because when the pin entry window arrives and I paste my 256 chars long password from a password manager, I’m getting the error - “passphrase too long”. I tried truncating my passphrase to 128 chars (wild guess), but no wonder it does not work. So basically v3 is totally useless for me, unless I revert to 2.x.x, change the passphrase to a shorter one and update again.
- Why was this limit lowered compared to v2?
- How long is this limit exactly?
- Why such a breaking change was not mentioned anywhere in changelogs?
p.s. I recognize that my pwd manager master password is shorter than my keyring’s 256 chars, effectively rendering the latter excessive, and maybe even v2 didn’t use the whole 256 chars, discarding them past the limit, but the problem is that such a breaking change has to be STATED IN ALL CAPS SOMEWHERE IN CHANGELOG, or better right at the download page.
