I agree that would have been slightly better, unfortunately it's too late now - a new versioning scheme would be even more confusing!

Would it better to have 2.0.3-alpha, 2.0.4-beta and then make 2.1 as a stable release? This way we just have one series (2.0.x) which is not suitable for general consumption.

I'm ok either way, but I want to just make a decision and move on to making the release asap, appreciate a quick resolution.
