You can create a branch using the release plugin with mvn release:branch.

Yes, like I said, creating the branch itself is cheap. It's the
additional overhead - two CI builds, periodic merges and co-ordination
that, while not much, makes sense to defer till the time you actually
need it. All I'm saying is that we can create the branch at any point
later once somebody wants to work on an issue that's targeted for 1.1.
But if you feel strongly about it, I can create the branch right away.
