Whonix 14 was released on August 6 but the signature was made much earlier, on May 12. Is everything correct here?

Question in the title.

Don’t know. Was it a good signature? You’re going to have to provide more information.

  • What command(s) did you run?
  • complete output of those command(s).

Yes, it was a good signature.

I ran the command gpg --import patrick.asc and got the next output:

gpg: key 8D66066A2EEACCDA: public key "Patrick Schleizer <adrelanos@riseup.net>" imported
gpg: Total number processed: 1
gpg:               imported: 1
gpg: no ultimately trusted keys found

Then I ran the command gpg --verify-options show-notations --verify Whonix-Gateway-*.libvirt.xz.asc Whonix-Gateway-*.libvirt.xz and got this output:

And similar outputs for the Whonix-Workstation-*.libvirt.xz.asc, Whonix-Gateway-*.sha*.asc and Whonix-Workstation-*.sha*.asc.

Hi fwazwf4f8u

Everything looks good! Its a good signature and the fingerprint matches up.The Whonix images where created earlier than the release date. Nothing to worry about.

These were released earlier as testers-only version. After long enough testing and after finishing up Qubes-Whonix, these Whonix VirtualBox / KVM was blessed stable without new build and without new signature.
