Public Key Algorithms - GnuPG 2.x lists fewer than GnuPG 1.x

I only just noticed that among the output of "gpg --version" I get
different lists of supported public key algorithms between versions
1.4.16 and 2.0.26.

1.4.16: RSA, RSA-E, RSA-S, ELG-E, DSA

2.0.26: RSA, ELG, DSA

Is this actually a change in what is supported, or just how GnuPG 
reports it?

Best regards

A nod is as good as a wink to a blind bat!
