The current iteration of the LV2 specification seems to have settled  
down, and there are a significant number of implementations now, so,  
assuming that there's no problems found with the current spec I  
propose to rename it as 1.0 in a few weeks time.

Background - http://lv2plug.in/

LV2 is an upcoming standard for plugins and matching host  
applications. It's mainly targeted at audio processing and generation.

LV2 is a successor to LADSPA, created to address the limitations of  
LADSPA which many hosts have outgrown. LV2 is not backwards  
compatible, but migration tools will be released once the  
specification is finalized.
