Are we there yet? Well almost! I've been getting a lot of questions
lately about when 1.1.0 gold will be out. We are almost there, with
the arrival of the rc1 release, we are now in feature freeze and have
already branched the code. Hence, any new development will now go into
1.2.0 code base and the 1.1.0 branch will only get critical bug fixes
and localization updates. This will allow us to quickly reach the
proven stability status and hence be able to release 1.1.0 gold. I am
optimistic that this can happen pretty quick since this rc1 came after
four alpha releases that were deployed in a lot of production sites
including our own official bug tracker.
This release includes features like db2 support, XWiki integration and
tagging. It also has security improvements and some localization
updates. All users of Mantis 1.1.0aX are encouraged to upgrade.
For Mantis instances that use non-latin characterset, there is no
automated upgrade path for data already in the database. Hence, this
wiki page guides you through the upgrade process. Please backup before
you attempt to upgrade. It is also recommended to test the upgrade
process on a backup instance rather than the live one.

Thanks for everyone who contributed to such great release!
