Yes, that's right. We haven't done this yet, but I suppose we could
announce "the beta for 2.0.0" and give people 1.6.3-r4321 saying
"This is the beta for 2.0.0.".
What we've done so far is a little less formal. We say "Hey there
are no more tickets open for 2.0.0 (see the issue tracker), so please
everyone test the current version (1.6.3-r4321), and in about a week
if there are no important new bugs discovered then we'll bump the
version number to 2.0.0 and release it!". This is much like a beta
but the word "beta" doesn't appear in the announcement.
