The QGIS_VERSION retuns such string: 'int.int.int-string', so I believe we 
should provide the form 'int.int.int' and don't carry about the suffix. 

In this case the Preview is recognized just as the final 1.0.0. I think it's 
not worth to put any huge stuff only for compatibility with Preview1. And 
Preview2 seems to be going to be compatible with the final api.
