Definitely no. Release 1.1 will be an update to 1.0, with no major 
design changes. However, we intend to integrate the nutchbase branch 
with trunk at some point - but since this would be a major change it 
would come under 2.0 branch or so ...

Please contact Dogacan, who is leading the work on this branch. AFAIK 
he's going to update the design soon.

See above - please coordinate with Dogacan to avoid duplication of effort.
