Updating GPG keychain to the latest nightly build doesn't update the version within GPG preference panel

Mac OS X: 10.10.1 (14B25)
MacGPG2: 2.0.26b2, 750b
GPG Keychain: 1.2b3 (470d6e8), 996n -still references the old version
GPGServices: 1.10b2 (3a7aba6), 739n
GPGPreferences: 1.5b2 (7c4ebb5), 736n
GPGMail: 2.5b4, 802b

I have attached the relevant screenshot. I have tried to restart GPG keychain and GPG preferences as well with no luck

    Update: I had to restart apple system preferences in order for the Keychain version to be updated within GPG preferences

    Hey wingman,

    correct observation and known limitation. I've created a ticket for this problem since indeed it would be a nice enhancement to have version info reflected as soon as an update has been installed without having to restart GPGPreferences.

    Thanks for the input,

    Hi Steve

    I have to restart the system preference on my MAC rather than the GPG preference but thanks for creating the ticket

    That is correct. Will update the ticket.
