I explained the versioning scheme in a mail to this list. You
obviously missed that. Here it is again:
The version number has been changed to 2.1.0. We plan to have the
gimp-2.2 plug-in API completely backward compatible to gimp-2.0.
Nevertheless most versions have been bumped to 2.1 for now. This is
to avoid confusion when both the gimp-2.0 and the development branch
are installed. It does _not_ mean that you can install gimp-2.0 and
gimp-2.1 into the same prefix. The two installations are _not_
disjunct, you need to keep them in separate prefixes!
When we approch gimp-2.2, we will probably change most version
numbers back to the GIMP API version which is 2.0.
