Back in April was the release of Slint 1.0 for this open-source, Rust-focused graphical toolkit formerly known as SixtyFPS. Today marks the release of Slint 1.1 as the first significant feature update after crossing the 1.0 milestone.

Slint 1.1 brings a new royalty-free license following community feedback. Slint formerly was under the GPLv3 and a proprietary commercial license while now there is also a royalty-free license option too. Slint's examples and tutorials are also now under a MIT license while the project has also adopted a simplified CLA.
