It depends. We work on them and move into the release when they're
ready. E.g. geographic distance strategies was moved recently, though
they are not yet documented. We plan to work on projections in the near
future. Some of them require great ammount of work before they are ready
for release, like the nsphere. Some of them probably won't be developed
further and therefore could be removed, like the old version of the rtree.
