This is no longer the case; GnuPG 2.1 is in Debian unstable (and has
been for a while).
Just installing that from unstable, however, will have bad side effects
for other software on your system, so I recommend against it (see also
Instead, it's better to run a backport. First, remove the experimental
repositories, and add a deb-src line for testing to your sources.list.
apt-get build-dep gnupg
apt-get -b source gnupg
This will take a while. If all goes well, and there are no dependencies
needed from unstable (I haven't checked), you'll end up with gnupg
packages that you can install on your jessie machine.

people in the world who think they really understand all of its rules,
and pretty much all of them are just lying to themselves too.
