Yes, this is the case. May be my previous mail was not completly clear. 
What I meant is :
- 2.0 is a complete rewriting
- 1.1, 1.3, etc are experimental implementations of new features and 
improvment over previous features
- 1.2, 1.4, etc are stable versions

I agree. But in the same time, while rewriting the whole server in 2.0, 
we may found new solution that could be included in 1.1. Remember that 
2.0 will be Java 5, so it will be different from 1.1, even if the code 
base could be very close. The idea is to let users get better versions 
really soon, not to let them wait for one year before they can 
experiment 2.0. So, yes, 1.1 and 2.0 will evolve in parallel.
