#761 Version-Bump from 0.21 to 1.22

With commit d6dfedf4a0f73de193cb19e72fab5a164ab78f4b Version is bumped to 1.22. Is this for real or a failure?

    A lot of people felt that having 0.XX versions made it seem like Geany was still "beta" software instead of the stable and reliable program it actually is. There was a vote on the dev mailing list about how to change the version number and it seems the majority chose to just make the major version 1 and keep the rest of the version the same, as opposed to going to 1.0 or some other arbitrary bump. We are aware it's kind of weird :)

    I'll make the status Pending to give you time to respond in case this is actually going be a problem for you.

    Thanks for the report!

    I have no problem with this move. The only thing i like to mention: Please change the version of the plugins too. And drop a line in the commits about the version change. I spend a half hour to find this change, as i would pack the latest version directly from trunk for my debian repository. The Problem: Somewhere in the debian packaging packaging is a check of the source version. :)

    Danke für Eure Arbeit und den tollen Editor.
