Better to say: Applications linked against gpgme-0.3.16 may be *used*
with GnuPG >= 1.9.x (as well as with the old newpg).
GnuPG >= 1.9 may be used with any GPGME version >= 0.3.16 (including
of course 0.4.x).

As I always get the Kmail/KDE versions wrong, Marc should answer
Just to make it clear what the backend consists of:
including the programs gpgsm, gpg2 gpg-agent, scdaemon and gpgconf
(gpg2 is basically an older version of gpg 1.3.x and it is in
general better to use the regular gpg (gnupg 1.2.x or gnupg
1.3.x) - thus we changed the name to gpg2)
Well, actually it is a kind of hermaphrodite as it is used
by the backend but actually be a part of the frontend (visible by
GPGME is part of the backend from the view of the developers but not
from a user's POV because it is linked to Kmail and other KDE apps.
