The first RC for OPAM 1.1.1 has just been tagged. Everyone is welcome to try it out and report any last-minute problems !

Last addition was the possibility for packagers to specify `archive: ["upstream-url" "mirror1" "mirror2"]` in the url files, so that we have a way to circumvent downtime of package hosting servers -- like recently happened for camlcity with dire consequences for new OPAM installations (ocamlfind could not be installed). We are working on a more general mirroring solution for the next release.

Cheers !
