GnuPG 1.9 is the future version of GnuPG; it is based on some
gnupg-1.3 code and the previous newpg package. It will eventually
lead to a GnuPG 2.0 release. Note that GnuPG 1.4 and 1.9 are not
always in sync and thus features and bug fixes done in 1.4 are not
necessary available in 1.9.
You should use this GnuPG version if you want to use the gpg-agent
or gpgsm (the S/MIME variant of gpg). Note that the gpg-agent is
also helpful when using the standard gpg versions (1.4.x as well as
some of the old 1.2.x). There are no problems installing 1.4 and
1.9 alongside; in fact we suggest to do this.
