It's been over a year and a half since APT 1.0 was released by the Debian development community while today APT 1.1 has reached the unstable community.

As mentioned earlier this year with the APT 1.1 development releases, there are "changes to how it retrieves files, the pinning algorithm with apt_preferences has been redone, the syntax of "apt install package.deb" now resolves correctly as well as its dependencies, and there are a variety of other usability improvements coming for APT 1.1."

As of today, APT 1.1 was accepted into Debian unstable.
