GnuPG 1.4 is the current stable version to be used for all security critical applications with real data. New releases are usually only done for bug and portability fixes.
GnuPG 2.0 ist the modularized version of GnuPG. It has an entirely different design and changes to the code and features are very frequent.
Features of GnuPG 2.0 are:
The GPGME library has recently be overhauled and the new API makes the use easier. GPGME is now multi-thread safe.
More details are available.
Libgcrypt is the GNU projects low-level cryptographic library.
Libgcrypt features some support Elliptic Curve algorithm. ECDSA is quite usable now, other algorithms are in the works.
For certain applications (e.g. web servers), it is often highly desirable to keep the CPU clear of lengthly mathematical calculations. Libgcrypt has some limited support for the VIA Padlock engine. We are interested in extended the support to other hardware.
The Directory Manager (dirmngr) is designed to be the central place to keep track of LDAP and other directory requests for Certifiction Revocation Lists (CRL) and direct certificate lookup. It was orginally developed as part of the Aegypten project.
The graphical mailer Sylpheed comes with OpenPGP support and basic S/MIME support.
