Unless I am sadly mistaken, version 2.0.0 has been released and the "beta" 
suffix is gone. ;-)

The discussion about CamelCase linking was sparked by a comment from Pm 
himself. He mused that he would liked to have made CamelCase linking off by 
default. It is not a new feature request.

My nitnoid response that I would like to see CamelCase off by default is 
based on my personal experience. I find it much more aggravating to disable 
individual links (via backtick) than to enable links I really want via 
[[brackets]]. Besides, someone wanting to make an [[explicit link]] via a 
phrase that is not CamelCase has to learn the brackets code (or use the 
edit button).
