I am working with GnuPG-Pack, which includes extended gpg-1.4.18.
This versions supports smartcard keys with 4096bit?

What's about the standard SHA1 hash with signatures?
In gpg.conf really no need for:

s2k-count 1000000
s2k-digest-algo SHA256
s2k-cipher-algo AES256
cert-digest-algo SHA256
digest-algo SHA256
personal-cipher-preferences AES256 TWOFISH AES192 AES CAST5
personal-digest-preferences SHA512 SHA384 SHA256 SHA224
personal-compress-preferences ZLIB BZIP2 ZIP
default-preference-list SHA512 SHA384 SHA256 SHA224 AES256 TWOFISH AES192


Thanks a lot, regards @g.
