There have been new (small) features and APIs added since alpha1,
e.g. mime-type detection with libmagic.

Once we've branched we'll start the review process for backports,
which will put a definite end to new functionality being added.
I'd say just call the first release from the branch "beta" if there are
known blockers, and call it "RC1" if there are no known blockers.
Until we branch, we should keep calling them "alpha".
