But is this version meant for normal users? I want to know if you
follow linux kernel numbering scheme where the second number means
stable if it is even, or development/unstable if it is odd.

Go to
http://subversion.tigris.org/servlets/ProjectDocumentList?folderID=260
and click on "Info". I would expect to see a portion of the ChangeLog
against the previous version, but I get nothing. The "Info" links
are just as good as the "Document & files" link on the web page menu.

If there is no difference other than release numbers in a page
where I am offered a download choice, I don't know which version
I am meant to get, nor which is safe for me to use.

Also, since 1.0 versions suffer from usability problems with renames,
I would expect at least a link from the main page where this feature
is announced to a small text which explains that full support is
not available on 1.0 but already fixed for 1.1 versions. Just like
you have the vulnerability note on the download page. For example
you could hyperlink the word "renames" in the main page to this
relevant information.
