Yes, he is right: from 4.2, there will only be one Libgda source
archive containing Libgda, the UI extension replacing Libgnomedb and
the GdaBrowser replacing (more or less) Mergeant. This is already in
place with release 4.1.1.

Most if not all of the new features are currently implemented in
version 4.1.1, and only the GdaBrowser needs a bit more work because
it can only for now be used to browse a database's structure. So, I
think you can reasonably expect a few more 4.1.x versions with a 4.2
by the end of the year.
