I think the code is stable enough that we don't need an "alpha" or "beta" 
label. On the other hand, we know that there will be API changes in the (near?) 
future. So I suggest we start with the version number 0.1.0.

@Gabriele: Let me know if I can support you with the release preparation.

Hey guys,
for now I redeployed the latest OpenCMIS SNAPSHOT, will look tomorrow  
into how we can practically (with the current Ant release process) get  
a release out there (also on the Apache Maven repo).
In such a case, what would be the version we would like to give to  
this release?

E.g. which one of the following does better reflect the readiness of  
our implementation:

- 1.0.0-alpha-1
- 1.0.0-beta-1

or do you have any other ideas in mind?
