The closest we get to a documented roadmap are the bugs that block the
release in our JIRA instance.

Ugh.  The notion of a "1.0" release is an artifact of commercial
software development, where vendors work behind closed doors to release
a tightly controlled product on a specific schedule.  It makes a lot
less sense in an open source project where people from different
companies and backgrounds collaborate using ad-hoc processes, and where
everything is transparent.

If you ask 10 people what a "1.0" means in the context of Cassandra,
you're going to see a number of different answers.  Some people will
think It's Time, others that we should have "Gone 1.0" a release or two
ago, and others still that think we're not yet there.


Your best bet is to evaluate the project for yourself, talk to others
who've come before, and decide on your own comfort level.

My preference would be to drop the leading 0 (it's never meant
anything), so 0.7.0 becomes 7.0, the next release 8.0, etc, etc.
