After a lot of development LibreSignage v1.1.0 is finally
here. This release includes a ton of new features as well as
bug fixes and more. Users of LibreSignage v1.0.x are encouraged
to upgrade as soon as possible.

This release includes support for automatically migrating data
created by older versions of LibreSignage so the upgrade process
should be quite easy. There's no manual work needed; data is
migrated automatically when the web interface is accessed.

Some major changes:
  - A rewrite of the server-side API system.
  - Major backend code improvements.
  - Support for HTTP caching slides resources.
  - A data migration system for simplifying upgrades
    between LibreSignage versions.

Docker images for this release will appear in the LibreSignage
Docker Hub repository as "eerotal/libresignage:v1.1.0" and
"eerotal/libresignage:latest". You can also build this release
from source by following the instructions provided in the readme.
Note that the build system has changed a bit from previous versions,
so you should probably give the instructions a read even if you
have built previous versions yourself.

               to naturally prevent access to private files. (PR #56)
