I agree. There's no reason to wait until after the upcoming release. 1.0:
the earlier, the better.

This release should be the most stable one ever made, so 1.0 is even more
justified. 0.X simply isn't justified anymore. It sounds like Geany was
alpha software, but it has indeed better release quality that the majority
of software out there.

Best regards.
