Yes, calling the new release 2.0 is a LIE. I cannot emphasize this strongly enough. It is a lie because we have told many, many people what 2.0 will do. To release a 2.0 without these features is pure misrepresentation. It is much too late to put the worms back into the can.
I've expressed my opinion before, but here are some links:
The 1.3.x "Cleanup for 2.0" branch o Port gimp to gtk+-2.0 o Cleanup some internal structures o Implement a few, well defined, new features o Think about a new way to handle plug-in distribution
The 1.9.x "Building GIMP 2.0" branch o GEGL -- Gimp 'E' Graphical Library o GCim -- The convergence integrated media object and utility library.
Feel free to send updates/comments/fixes/flames/whatever. We will keep this document up-to-date and post new versions when neccessary.

Lots of features listed, all of them targetted at GIMP 1.4, none of which mention GEGL and fully conform the above document. Some of which, in fact, I don't think have even been completed. ("Script-Fu overhaul", "Image/File Information", ?)
