this is not my viewpoint, but i'm developper. For me these features are
important for photograph :

XMP is not yet supported.
No batch Queue manager.
No search based on advanced metadata.
No DB/pictures backup/restore tool.
No versionning of pictures.

Creating a 1.0 version would put digiKam under spotlight and that would

agree for this point.

This is why I make the following proposal :
> - create a 1.0.0 for the next digiKam version (instead of 0.9.2)

For  0.9.2 it's too late because all is ready to perform release and we have
already don beta1, beta2 and beta3. We cannot break this serie.

0.9.3 would be 1.0.1

The discussion is open. Why not 1.0.0, but i'm not alone to decide...

- use 2.0 for kde4 port

why not.
