I am not expecting to stop support for 0.0.x a day after new version 
However, as you may expect, all the changes will go to the "fresh" 
version first.
Backporting changes to old version or not would be decided on case by 
case basis.
If you are starting a new project I would strongly advise to go with new 
It's slightly faster, easier to program and provide much more control 
for application.

And I have to disagree with you about porting from 0.0.x to 0.1.1. I did 
about 3500 lines of code for xmlsec command line utility in about a day. 
mention, that now it is only about 3000 lines :)
