There is no such roadmap. Apache httpd developers work on what they
think is important. You'll notice that 1.3 still gets the occasional
security release, so the developers haven't abandoned it.

If you want my opinion, I'd say that 2.0 is relatively vulnerable. It
has an easy upgrade path to 2.2 and is at a dead-end in terms of
development, so there is little incentive for the developers to
continue to support it over the long term. 2.2 would be the much safer
choice at the moment.
