Two months ago Toby said something about this - see below.

2.0 release date unknown but much of the stuff is in master branch
(quite alpha at the moment)

The main things I'm aware of

1) new templating based on jinja2 which is much easier to customise
(genshi 'legacy' templates will remain supported for at least the
initial release)
2) Fanstatic will be used to include .js .css to allow
minification/bundling of resources and hopefully simpler faster page
3) new .js application.js killed off and replaced by more modular
approach (new templates only) - better translation support for .js
4) data preview will be better integrated (in iframe) - this is not
yet in master but pending
5) finally depreciate some old helper functions etc - this has been
ongoing since 1.7

These are just the things I'm aware of but likely there are more.
There will very likely be some changes to groups/organisations
