Confirmed.  1.4.7 and 2.0.3 (both from source) are also on my system.

$ (gpg --version; gpg2 --version) | grep 'Hash:'
Hash: MD5, SHA1, RIPEMD160, SHA256, SHA384, SHA512, SHA224
Hash: MD5, SHA1, RIPEMD160, TIGER192, SHA256, SHA384, SHA512

In other words:
1.4.7 supports SHA224 but not TIGER192.
2.0.3 supports TIGER192 but not SHA224.

I myself was curious why SHA224 was inexplicably dropped.  Not that I
assume many people use it, but it seems a bit arbitrary.  Is there an
explanation, wk?
