+=== Last released version

++el-get+ version 2.1 is available, with a boatload of features, including
+autoloads support, byte-compiling in an external "clean room" Emacs
+instance, custom support, lazy initialisation support (defering all init
+functions to +eval-after-load+), and multi repositories +ELPA+ support.
+
+=== Version numbering
+
+Version String are now inspired by how Emacs itself numbers its version.
+First is the major version number, then a dot, then the minor version
+number. The minor version number is 0 when still developping the next major
+version. So 2.0 is a developer release while 2.1 will be the next stable
+release.

+1.2~dev, so 1.0 was a "stable" release in fact. Ah, history.
