Well, not yet...

1.1.0 will still have to keep a jdk 1.4 compatibility, while 2.0 will be 
full java 5.

There are some discussion about having an intermediate version (1.5 ?) 
like tomcat did for version 5.5, but they are just discussions.

You have to keep in mind that many prokect are still using a 1.4 jdk, 
even if java 5 is becoming more and more visible. Geronimo is still 
using a 1.4 jfk, for instance.

Not that I like 1.4 a lot, and I'm pretty aware of the problems we have 
with 1.4 (SSL, concurrent, etc...), but it's not a move we can make in 6 
days, plus a rest day :)
