The Julia developers are pleased to announce the release of Julia v1.1.0. Binaries are available on https://julialang.org/downloads for Linux (i686 and x86-64), Windows (32- and 64-bit), macOS, and FreeBSD (x86-64).
Julia v1.1.0 is the first minor release in the 1.x series of releases after 1.0. As a minor release, it contains no breaking changes, only new features, performance improvements, and marginal, undisruptive changes in behavior. The largest difference between 1.1 and 1.0 is that 1.0 will have longer-term support and that 1.1 contains new features that 1.0 does not have. The most useful reference for the changes in 1.1 is the NEWS file file for 1.1.0.
Note that 1.1 on Travis, AppVeyor (using Appveyor.jl), and Cirrus (using CirrusCI.jl) now refers to v1.1.0. We encourage everyone to give it a try. As always, let us know in the issue tracker if you run into any issues.
