The 2.0 is solid for most people however we ended not announcing it
yet due two reasons:

 - imminent merge of consolidated GA release (3.14.52);
 - known broken boards (most fixed now);

When Yocto Project 2.0 was released our quality were not as good as we
demand and were need more time for the fixes to land. Most has been
done but I want to get consolidated BSP in before tagging this.
