As we are approaching the dreaded "1.10", this or the next release seem like good opportunities to drop the meaningless "1." from our version numbers.

IIRC, back at FOSDEM 2014 Alexandre said that 1.8/1.9 would be the last 1.x releases because people are confused by two digit numbers.

Yes, the plan is for the next stable version to be called 2.0.

There are no plans yet for what happens after that, this would be a good Wineconf topic...
