Hi everyone. Lightbend Tooling team is happy to announce sbt 1.1.0-RC1. This is the first feature release of sbt 1, a binary compatible release focusing on new features. sbt 1 is released under Semantic Versioning, and the plugins are expected to work for sbt 1.x series. If no serious issues are found by Thursday, December 14th 2017, 1.1.0-RC1 will become 1.1.0 final.
The headline features of sbt 1.1 are unified slash syntax and sbt server. They are both features that I have been involved in for a while, but ultimately had to postpone for sbt 1.0. This makes it all the more exciting to see these finally come out.
