As the first point release since the exciting release of Wayland/Weston 1.1, important bug-fixes have landed for the display protocol's reference compositor.

There weren't any worthwhile Wayland changes to warrant a 1.1.1 release, but Weston 1.1.1 was tagged last night by Kristian Høgsberg. Some of the prominent bug-fixes for Weston 1.1.1 are for monitor hot-plugging, evdev crashes, missing DPMS issue, and other changes.

The list of Weston 1.1.1 bug-fixes can be found in the release announcement, but no new features will come until Wayland/Weston 1.2.
