Additional Notes for Users of v1.1.0.alpha branch

For historical reasons, v1.1.0.alpha is a hot-fix branch and got this name by mistake. All fixes in that branch are cherry-picked to v1.0.4 and the v1.1.0.alpha branch will be discarded to keep things clear.

We strongly recommend you to upgrade to v1.0.4 if you are using any version under v1.1.0.alpha.
