The PGP signing key for our binaries is now 4096-bit (was 1024 since 2007):
Code:
pub 4096R/29C17558 12/29/2013 Steffen Land (Apache Lounge) <info@apachelounge.com>
    Primary key fingerprint:  3D49 885E ADE8 BC39 9F46 D5DD BEE8 8A78 29C1 7558


A PGP signature allows anyone to verify that a file is identical to the one created by Apache Lounge. Using a signature, users can make sure that what they received has not been modified in any way, either accidentally via a faulty transmission channel, or intentionally (with or without malicious intent)

PGP signatures confer the usual advantages of digital signatures: authentication, integrity and non-repudiation. MD5 and SHA checksums only provide the integrity part as they are not encrypted.
