This release provides bugfixes, updates AND features.

As we've added many new features and enhancements as well as several bugfixes, we STRONGLY recommend, that you have a look at our upgrade guide, before upgrading your installation to 1.1.1! Please do NEVER update your production system WITHOUT test your application locally or on a test system.
