No, the versions will be different.

2.0 is next release.

Next minor (maintanence) releases will be 2.X.

Next major release will be 3.0.

What -current would be marked as between 2.0 and 3.0 I don't really
care. Either 2.0X or 3.0X works for me, methinks 3.0X is better
now that there won't be any doubt on what the next version would be.
Please don't employ any 'odd' and 'even' numbering scheme.
