My new Curve25519 ECC OpenPGP GnuPG PGP public key

Just posted new key and signed with the old one. The Curve25519 isn't yet part of OpenPGP standard but it has been already implemented in GnuPG and it's the only safe ECC key option in GnuPG so I chose it. For encryption the old 4096 ElGamal key is good for sure, but the old 1024 bit DSA key is weak. That's why I generated new keys. The old keys are still valid and haven't been revoked.

My new OpenPGP / PGP / GnuPG / GPG key.
