In this alpha release, localization files has been changed to all use
the UTF-8 encoding. This allows the use of several languages within
the same Mantis instance. The upgrade path to non-English
installations is not yet implemented, hence, this alpha release SHOULD
ONLY BE USED FOR ENGLISH installations. Among the major updates is the
roadmap feature. There has been a database schema changes since
1.1.0a1 release, hence, the install script will need to be executed.
I would appreciate your feedback on this release, specially with
regards to the major new features.
