1.1 Kernel Released

The April rolling release (version 1.1) has been tagged and pushed. The most significant improvements in this release are a new, more readable and less error prone regiter interface and a resource ownership based clock manager for the SAM4L. With both of these used now nearly ubiquitously in the kernel, SAM4L based boards automatically go to deep sleep when there are no active peripherals.

Ports to the nRF52 development kit and Hail and imix, based on the Atmel SAM4L, are considered stable and are backwards compatible with 1.0. An initial port to the CC26xx series of platforms is included but not yet stable. The stabilized system call ABI does not include any new peripherals since 1.0.
