Why? I still use 1.4. It is easily usable through the command line if
needed, while 2.x has a very complicated setup with lots of external
dependencies and has a feature bloat most users will never need.

I would certainly include a discussion of the incompatabilities that
exist between 1.4 and 2.1: the dropped V3 keys support and ECC keys in 2.1.
