Here is your clear commitment to the future of 1.4.x.  The numbering
between 1.4 and 2.0 is perhaps unfortunate in that it implies that 2.0
replaces 1.4.  It doesn't.  They are two different programs that serve
different purposes.  There is certainly overlap (they both do
OpenPGP), but 1.4.x is not going anywhere and new OpenPGP development
will be done on both.
