* In `put!(c::Channel{T}, v)`, `v` now gets converted to `T` as `put!` is being called ([#29092]).
* `current_project()` now searches the parent directories of a Git repository for a `Project.toml` file.
This also affects the behavior of the `--project` command line option when using the default
`--project=@.` ([#29108]).

!!! compat "Julia 1.1"
In Julia 1.0, the default `--project=@.` option did not search up from the root
