After many delays and being too busy with life. I have finally gotten 2.0.0 out.
For those of you that have been running the release candidates, 2.0.0 is identical to rc5 with only the version number, README and CHANGES files having been updated.
I look forward to having 2.0.0 stabilized soon.
Next on the horizon for layman is gpg signed repositories list support and python 3 compatibility.
