1.0 will be done from whatever stable series we are happy with. If 0.10
suits our needs, we will call it 1.0 after a while, with minor changes
if required. Large changes will become 0.11, leading to 0.12 and 1.0.
1.0 is stable, application API (subset, still to be determined) will
definately be stable. We may keep plugin API or caps descriptions
unstable between minor releases (1.0 <-> 1.2), we haven't decided on
that yet.

No official policy, everyone is free to keep working on 0.8. I will. I
need it for GNOME. 0.9 won't be usable anytime soon fr at least a few

I'll go over those before we release 0.8.8.
