We should advertise the birth of this little creature as widely as possible. Any idea?

We should probably update the wiki as soon as possible so that people would get the new documentation :)

As we have some ugly bugs in final, I would vote for quickly relasing 1.1.1! We can go on with further bugfix releases (1.1.2, 1.1.3, ...) afterwards, for to provide good user experience

Have you guys thought of using some kind of "feature freeze", meaning that some releases would be purely bug fixes.? That would minimize the regression that is always possibility with new functionality. I for one appreciate stability above all else in HTPC software.

Disclaimer: I have not actually yet upgraded, but if it is as bad as you say, then I might hold of for 1.1.1

It's not bad, just few things!

1.1.0 will not get any new features, just updates and fixes
