gnupg doesn't show the correct version on the signature
 
After the gnupg upgrade on the 21st of December the
version of gnupg shown on the PGP signature is
incorrect.

Before the upgrade it showed:

-----BEGIN PGP SIGNATURE-----
Version: GnuPG v1.4.15 (GNU/Linux)

After the upgrade it shows:

-----BEGIN PGP SIGNATURE-----
Version: GnuPG v1

What's New
===========

* Fixed the RSA Key Extraction via Low-Bandwidth Acoustic
Cryptanalysis attack as described by Genkin, Shamir, and Tromer.
See <http://www.cs.tau.ac.il/~tromer/acoustic/>. [CVE-2013-4576]

* Put only the major version number by default into armored output.

* Do not create a trustdb file if --trust-model=always is used.

* Print the keyid for key packets with --list-packets.

* Changed modular exponentiation algorithm to recover from a small
performance loss due to a change in 1.4.14.
