thanks for all the work you put into this release. I had not the time to 
look at the new stuff in detail, but looking at the release notes, I wonder 
about the version:

1/ requires now Java 5 instead of 1.3
2/ is binary compatible with 1.4
3/ does not remove deprecated stuff
4/ is using the same package name 
5/ is using the old Maven groupId
6/ adds a lot new stuff
7/ deprecates some stuff
8/ contains bug fixes

IMHO we started with 2.0 because we were not sure if topic 2/ and 3/ can be 
ensured for 1/ and it was not a primary goal. However, this turned out fine 
and 1/ has been never forcing a major version change in general. So, is 
there any other reason to call this release 2.0 instead of 1.5?
