This first unstable 1.1.0 release has been made, which will work
towards a 1.2.0 stable release in six months.  This release contains
the fixes from the stable branch and some deprecations.  It is
recommended to stick with the 1.0.x series for now, this is mostly
being released before the NEWS file gets too large to read.
