Moving version numbers backwards is almost always a bad idea so I
would recommend against 0.99.0 unless the package has not yet been
pushed to the BioC web repository (you didn't mention your package

If a package is at 1.0.2, I believe our scripts will bump the package
to 1.2.0 for the release and 1.3.0 for the next devel cycle.  So
changing to 1.1.0 is not absolutely required.

Does that help?
