...with pointers on what to consider if users should upgrade or not,
and a clear explanation of what to expect in the near future.  This
could address Tim's initial concern (which I think is valid):

"Users who don't keep completely up to date with the latest goings on will see
this as the latest and greatest and start migrating to it, only to
have a very rude surprise when large changes occur in 2.1, or a 3.0
arrives months later."

Those three lines above, listing 2.0,  2.1 and 3.x, could be
communicated on the front page, on a simple table.  This would be
similar to how Tomcat explains why they have three versions.  Very
straightforward and easy to digest.
