In the commercial software world, it is suggested to avoid X.0 versions, and wait for X.1. Let somebody else take the arrows in the back (AmericanCulturalAssumption regarding pioneers and risk).
In the OpenSource software world, it's the X.2, X.4, X.6, X.8 (the even, but maybe not X.0) versions that are most suitable for the public.

Don't forget also the Web 2.0 Validator: http://web2.0validator.com/ (How's that for abusing DNS?) Check if your website is sufficiently WebTwoPointOh by seeing if it has been tagged with certain keywords on DelIcioUs.
Try bullsh*tr, the Web 2.0 Bullsh*t Generator and its recommended links: http://emptybottle.org/bullshit/
