[ANNOUNCE] Upstart 1.1 released

From: Scott James Remnant
Date: Wed Mar 16 2011 - 20:51:05 EST

Nothing says "stable release" like a merry round of bug fixes,
including the file descriptor leak when the "script" keyword is used.

1.1 2011-03-16 "It's probably 'cause you think you're cooler than me"

* When /sbin/halt is called (without -p), this now results in the
system being halted and not powered down. If you meant it to be
powered down, use /sbin/poweroff. (Bug: #532366)

* Fixed file descriptor leak of /proc/self/fd/NN to shell scripts
executed by Upstart. (Bug: #619269)

* Fixed bug where console was closed too early, causing loss of error
messages and non-functioning keyboard-request event,
(Bug: #707151)

* Fixed bug where environment variables containing unusual characters
were not accepted due to a mis-reading of POSIX. (Bug: #567068).

* Fixed non-removal of symlinks on "make uninstall". (Bug: #604227)

* Reduced priority of job termination messages from warn to info
if the exit status or signal is listed in "normal exit".
(Bug: #522197)
