Several sections on core improvements/known issues were added to master rather than the 1.1 branch during the 1.1 release cycle. These sections are therefore missing from the tagged 1.1.x release notes, despite being relevant for those releases. This commit adds these sections, although they will still be missing from prior tag points.
Generate explicit build tags when building off of a non-tagged commit When a commit is not the head of a tag, generate a new hash rather than relying on the hash from 'git describe'. Also, when running eunit on dependencies, run them separately by specifying app=$dep to eunit so that there is no longer contention between tests.
