Actually gpg4win 1.1.1 already features gnupg2.  However it is at this
point not very usabable some command line actions do work but there are
quite some bugs.

We are working on this, yesterday I achieved to sent the first S/MIME
mail using Claws and gnupg2.  Stay tuned.

Because it is an optional part of OpenPGP and iirc even PGP does not
support bzip2.  I'll see whether we can include it into the gpg4win
