I just posted an informational draft about some minor changes that the PGP sdk
is now supporting.   comments and complaints are welcome.

be kind, this is my first time doing this.


 This document describes an extension to the OpenPGP Message Format
   that allows a Multipurpose Internet Mail Extension (MIME) Media Type
   (aka Intenet Media type) to be associated with the encoded content.
   By providing more information beyond the existing binary and text
   formats this extension and can enable the automated selection of an
   appropriate media viewer for the decoded content.
