Full ACK (seldom enough that Lex and me agree so much on a topic :D).
I also don't think 0.9x versions make much sense. Geany didn't have
much beta releases at all in the past.

Also, I guess that most of Lex' list of things to do won't happen all
in one single release which would need betas and stuff. I think it's
more probable, that this would be an ongoing process and as such,
subsequent releases as before would perfectly fit (also to not stretch
the release cycle even more). And independently of the version number,
hell, it's just a number.
