> I am getting (trying to get) things all nicely tidied up, organized, and automated for the JDOM2 releases. But, one thing I have not yet sorted out is the version number(s) for the 'final' JDOM2 release.

My vote would be JDOM version 2.0.0.  I think people will casually refer to it as JDOM 2, which is fine.

In Maven I'm OK either way.  If it's under the artifact name jdom2 we avoid accidental breakage, but we will have people for years initiating new projects against jdom instead of jdom2 just by accident.
