FWIW, I guess that we need at least 6 more months to get gpg2 as
matured as gpg 1.3.90. In the meantime there is not much point in
having a gpg2 package.
Some notes on terminology:
GnuPG (or gnupg)
is the entire gnupg package consisting of just the gpg utility in
package versions < 1.9 and all the tools (gpg2, gpgsm, gpg-agent,
scdaemon) in later versions.
is the well known OpenPGP utility. In versions 1.9 it gets
installed as gpg2, though.
is the newer CMS/X.509 (S/MIME) counterpart of gpg utility. It is
independent of gpg but provides a similar functionality.
is part of gnupg > 1.9 but may als be used with any current gpg
versions (1.2.6, 1.3.90, gpg2 1.9.11).
