My thoughts:

1. Since the 1.4 release is coming up very quickly I would do this for 1.5 
2. I would choose 2a.
3. Seems a bit confusing to me to label nimBLE releases with same number as 
Mynewt releases. Why not just make the first stable release of nimBLE 1.0? Not 
a big deal either way but since they are going to diverge eventually.
