This release contains new features and many bug-fixes. One of the main
additions is a persistence layer (datamapper) for the CIMI frontend,
allowing support of CIMI resources that aren't usually available on the
back-end providers that Deltacloud  interacts with (e.g. the
MachineTemplate resource). This is one of the reasons we have decided to
make the jump to 1.1.0.

features/bug-fixes in this release:
