Release Notes
-------------
This is a *preview* release of the up-coming 1.1 release. We are not feature
complete for 1.1 just yet, but we wanted to get the following functionality
published to gain some early community feedback on the following features:

  - https://jira.hyperledger.org/browse/FAB-2331- Node.js Chaincode
  - https://jira.hyperledger.org/browse/FAB-5363 - Node.js SDK Connection Profile
  - https://jira.hyperledger.org/browse/FAB-830 - Encryption library for chaincode
  - https://jira.hyperledger.org/browse/FAB-5346 - Attribute-based Access Control
  - https://jira.hyperledger.org/browse/FAB-6089 - Chaincode APIs to retrieve
    creator cert info
  - https://jira.hyperledger.org/browse/FAB-6421 - Performance improvements

Additionally, there are the usual bug fixes, documentation and test coverage
improvements, UX improvements based on user feedback and changes to address a
variety of static scan findings (unused code, static security scanning, spelling,
linting and more).

Known Issues & Workarounds
--------------------------
The fabric-ccenv image which is used to build chaincode, currently includes
the github.com/hyperledger/fabric/core/chaincode/shim ("shim") package.
This is convenient, as it provides the ability to package chaincode
without the need to include the "shim". However, this may cause issues in future
releases (and/or when trying to use packages which are included by the "shim").

In order to avoid any issues, users are advised to manually vendor the "shim"
package with their chaincode prior to using the peer CLI for packaging and/or
for installing chaincode.

Please refer to https://jira.hyperledger.org/browse/FAB-5177 for more details,
and kindly be aware that given the above, we may end up changing the
fabric-ccenv in the future.
