You can now easily add a prefix to all modules of a given package, e.g., to map modules from version 1 of a package under V1.. It’s explained in the release notes at https://blog.daml.com/release-notes/1.2.0 and you can find more info in the docs at https://docs.daml.com/1.2.0-snapshot.20200602.4310.0.1c18058f/daml/reference/packages.html#handling-module-name-collisions

The release is postponed to tomorrow, June 11th, due to an ongoing incident preventing us from releasing artefacts to Maven.
