That is the goal, yes. 2.0 is the new version, and is intended to
replace 1.3 once it gets all of the kinks worked out. We just had a GA
(General Availability) release of 2.0 a few weeks ago, and there are
still a few things being nailed down.

1.3 has been the stable version for a number of years now, and has had
about 20 releases during that time. 2.0 has, so far, had just 2 releases
(after the initial alpha and beta phase, that is) so some people don't
feel comfortable with it yet. However, web sites have been
running 2.0 for many months.
