-1 keeping the 1.0.0 version. It's a bit misleading. Historically, 1.0.0 
  is a means of declaring that a feature set is complete and moreover 
the team has agreed it really is. If you're satisfied with keeping in 
sync with WTP numbering, I'm fine with it, but the other question is 
whether or not the 1.0.0 is indeed ready.

So, a question might strike a reader, what's the roadmap for 1.0.0? Is 
JIRA the definite source of what's coming?

0.5.0 - doesn't look good, either. It reminds me OpenEJB and Castor with 
the never-ending numbering where no one could decide what exactly should 
  be the 1.0 version (fortunatelly, Dave cut the pre-1.0 version of 
OpenEJB, so it's drawing to its close ;))

I'd vote for 0.5.0 if JIRA (or any other source) would be appropriately 
updated so that one could see what it really means. Of course, at the 
moment, 0.5.0 is as good to me as 0.7.5 or even ;)

Since 1.0.0-dev is not possible, I'd go with 0.5.0 and update JIRA 
accordingly, so that the plugin won't fall into the trap of the 
never-ending 0.x.x.x numbering.
