I'm really pleased to announce the availability of the final version of bcfg2-1.1.0. This version has numerous improvements over version 1.1.1, in over 400 changesets.  This version features several drastic improvements over version 1.0.1, including:
 - Greatly improved accuracy and performance of the Packages plugin
 - A re-written YUMng driver
 - django reporting system bugfixes and operational utilities
 - POSIX Path entries
 - new documentation in sphinx (to replace trac wiki docs)
 - drivers for Upstart, Mercurial and Darcs
 - bugfixes all over the tree

The only major repository change in this version is that posix Path entries now must be used in bundles and rules. If old clients are talking to a new server, the POSIXCompat plugin can re-render new style configurations into ones that can be used by clients older than 1.0.1. (1.0.1 and newer support both formats).

This release, more than any previous one is the result of hard work by a large number of people. The following people have made really large contributions: (in alphabetical order)
- Fabian Affolter
 - Jonathan Billings
 - Richard Connon
 - Joe Digilio
 - Arto Jantunen
 - Sol Jerome
 - Mathieu Jobin
 - Tim Laszlo
 - m4z
 - Jack Neely (slack)

This release also includes patches from a bunch of others as well.

From here on out, we are going to branch a 1.1.X stable release stream, and will do new feature development against the 1.2.0 branch.
As always, problems can be reported here, on IRC, or in trac.
Great job everyone!
