Yes, there will be a release on Sep 20th which support RSA. I am currently not sure whether we can also do key generation because this needs some additional changes which I am currently implementing in the development branch and which have to be backported to the stbale branch. However, eben with RSA you can't encrypt to PGP 2 keys becuase the IDEA algorithm will not be supported. If you just want to use your existing RSA key, this will work fine.
