We need to change the version number that is shown in Settings to something less than 1 to avoid impression to press that this is early preview of v1.
Evelyn said it's in Gecko at <mc-root>/gecko/b2g/confvars.sh Line#13.

Dave/Chris, do you want all traces of 1.0 removed, or something like "1.0prelease" ok?

I'm fine with "1.0-prelease" or "developer build 1.0".  Any issue with either one of these?
just to prevent any accidental confusion, why not "developer build 0.1". Basically..don't have a "1.0" or "V1, which if someone looks too quickly looks like a full release.

I'm fine with this, but I find it odd to go from 0.1 directly to a version 1.0 release.  I'll defer to Alex and others in release management on the best way to handle the numbering.
I should say, all I'm really concerned with is clearly communicating "not a final product; this is an early preview" message. How we do that I have little opinion on. So call it a "0.1" or a "Developer Preview" or just nothing at all, however you want to do it.
The version is the target version we're developing for (as with Firefox versions, which just include a1 or a2 next to the version to denote Nightly/Aurora)..

Let's just append "-prerelease" to the version to make it clear (as suggested in Comments 1/2). David - can you help reassign?
