Thanks to everyone who contributed patches towards this release

A note about versioning... For future releases it is expected that we
will use numbers 2.0, 3.0, 4.0, etc. The minor numbers (1.1, 1.2, etc)
are currently not intended to for use, reserved in case we ever need
to do so called "stable branch" updates for a release.
