Today I am about to create a bunch of revocation certificates for all of my emails. Why? Because it already happened to me in the past, that I lost my private key, or my computer was compromised. It does not really matter, but I felt like it is better when you know. I will store it in a safe place, no worries.
Now, I have both GnuPG 1.4.16 and GnuPG 2.0.22 on my Linux machine installed. What version should I use to generate them? I am used to using version 1.4, but since there is a newer version, I can't think of any reason as to why would I not use the newer one. Or is there?
Anyway, I created the revocation certificate with both versions and they differ.
