Company has my cv. I changed parts concerning the past. Send it again?

Should I sent a potential employer and updated version of my cv, when the difference concerns the past?
In the version they have, I didn't include one project I was working on, but I would include it now.

I'm a computer science student nearing my graduation. I've been in contact with a potential employer, Employer Inc. Several months ago I've sent them a copy of my cv, but didn't proceed with the application because my graduation was then still too far away. In the first version of my cv, I've omitted some paid coding work done for an open source product, because the part I was working on was ultimately scrapped and none of my work made it into the release. My embarrassment about it was the reason for not mentioning it the first time. In the meantime, I've continued working on the project and the new work was included in the release, mostly bugfixes and GUI stuff.
As I see it, my options are:
1. Leave the CV as it is.
2. Send them an updated version in which I only mention the second time I worked on the project, where I can point to (albeit unimpressing) results.
3. Include the whole time and hope they don't notice the difference.
