Web-based pinentry

I'm the maintainer of a PHP package that integrates with GnuPG 

The package is used on a website to allow decrypting stored messages. 
This is accomplished using the --status-fd and --command-fd options of 
GnuPG, allowing the passing of passphrases.

As of GnuPGv2, the --command-fd method of passing passphrases no longer 
seems to work. Is there an alternative I can use so that the pin entry 
interface is still a webpage?

I would continue to use GnuPGv1, but distributions have stopped 
including it by default and no longer provide packages.

Please let me know what I can use to handle pin-entry in a web-based system.
