Hello!

Just a quick heads up: erlang.mk 1.1 has been released.

I want to thank everyone for the huge amount of interest there has been 
since the 1.0 announcement.

This release is mostly bug fixes. Makefiles do not need to be changed. 
The minor version got increased due to behavior changing slightly as 
described below.

New packages in the index: neo4j, pegjs, epgsql, jiffy, lager, 
resource_discovery, katja, tinymt-erlang and erwa. Thanks to everyone 
who submitted them. We now have 19 packages listed, with more to come. 
You can help too: https://gist.github.com/essen/9ef9342e7dea993889c3

Other than help/error messages and documentation tweaks, fixes include:

  *  relx was being downloaded on all rel builds; this was corrected
  *  relx targets are now defined regardless of relx.config presence
  *  fix handling of RELX_OUTPUT_DIR variable
  *  .hrl files modification now forces all project to recompile
  *  .plt files are now automatically generated on 'make dialyze'
  *  fix compatibility with FreeBSD and some Linux environments

Thanks to everyone who contributed with bug reports and fixes!
