I echo what John said. This means that 2.1 branch will be in the
maintenance mode and all the active development will happen on the
master which later produce the new 3.0 release. It is not a rewrite, it
is just a lot of new functionality. During last 9 months our effort was
mostly focused on stabilizing and cleaning the functionality we planned
to deliver and we have not done any new major features. Now master
branch is going to be open for such features.
