As Play! Framework has been definitely divided into 1.x+ vs. 2.x+ versions, that would be quite useful if users could tag their questions with exact version also for 1.x, playframework-1.0 (in opposite to existing playframework-2.0 tag)

My vote is for two tags only:
playframework-1.x -> this branch is mostly backward compatible between minor versions
According to some discussions on the playframework mailing list the 1.x branch is considered "feature-complete"; there will only be maintenance releases. There's no point for 1.0, 1.2, etc tags.
Hm, I do not really agree here. I've been retagging a lot of questions recently before reading this post. I've been tagging :
- playframework for 1.x
- playframework-2 for 2.x
Creating two tags playframework-1.x and playframework-1.2 is ridiculous. There is no difference between them. Plus the whole point of tagging is that the tag is popular and might help the question be answered. If you create many tags, they will be less used, thus less popular and tagged questions less answered.
EDIT : After a little digging, searching, thinking, my suggestion. Three tags :
- playframework : The general tag for general purposes, architectural, comparing between versions and other.
- playframework-1.x : Playframework 1 related questions
- playframework-2.x : Playframework 2 related questions
EDIT : I don't know, but when I see this, I think it is about time we reach a decision. In order not to mess up the whole tagging.
Maybe merge all 1.x tags into 1.0? So there will be 3 tags: 1.x, 2.x and general one.
Are 1.1 and 1.2 so different between each other, and 2.0, so should exists independently?
