I sent an email about that a few days ago, see here :

Don't you think it's time to use a new version numbering schema ?

I think digiKam has reached its stability point.
For most people, when you see a 0.9.x version, it means the software is
quite close to a stable 1.0 version.
Using version 0.10 let digiKam looks as an immature software that lacks
reliability and features. And I definitively think it's not the case !

Creating a 1.0 version would put digiKam under spotlight and that would
be great...
I also think it's important to clearly separate kde3 versions and kde4

This is why I make the following proposal :

- create a 1.0.0 for the next digiKam version (instead of 0.9.2)
0.9.3 would be 1.0.1

- use 2.0 for kde4 port

Achim and Mikolaj already said they like the idea.

What about others ?
Gilles, Marcel, Oliver, Arnd, ... ?

Maybe you missed it in the thread :)
