1.1.1 was branched from the trunk prior to release, yes. 1.1.42 was the last
version released, so that will be will be reported (plus the revision number).
The fact that eventually this branch may be used to cut 1.2.0 is besides the point.

It will still display 1.1.42 [or whatever was the last release before 1.2.0 was
cut] (plus the revision number), since 1.2.0 doesn't exist until 1.2.0 is
released. The fact that in the repository there is a tag called "1.2.0" doesn't
mean anything until it is released. We have to trust people not to update to
the 1.2.0 tag until after we have officially released it (although, by 1.2.0 we
will have ACL's to enforce that, right?).
