Hi Paolo,

IMHO, QGIS 2.0 is not a feature for a 0.0.x release :)
If we decide to make a new release, this should be 7.1
Such a release would require us checking/testing ALL applications, since 
lots of things change in UbuntuGIS within a month...
Are there volunteers to make a testing plan for a 7.1 release? I can 
only cover building around this time of the year.
