v1.1.0 -- The Great Machine -- is the mainnet release of Altair specs, including the epoch chosen for the planned mainnet upgrade on Oct 27, 2021 (#2625). This marks the first major upgrade to the Great Machine since genesis in late 2020.

Merge interop specs remain stable from v1.1.0-beta.5 other than the addition of the terminal blockhash override (#2617) [not required for initial interop] and some new consensus tests (#2630). Due to the inclusion of additional consensus test vectors, we recommend targeting v1.1.0 tests prior to initial interop.
