Absolutely!  I just created the 1.1.x maintenance branch:

The trunk is now open for 1.2 development:
I know several people have code for 1.2 who have been patiently
waiting for me.  Please feel free to go ahead and commit your code to
the trunk now.  Alan McIntyre officially starts his Google Summer of
Code project on Monday.  One of his first tasks will be to help
convert NumPy to the nose testing framework.  That will probably start
in a branch and then get merged all at once just like Matthew Brett
did for SciPy.  Also Stefan should feel free to start committing all
the documentation work to the trunk now.

If no one has any more input on the recent buildbot failures, I will
tag 1.1.0 from the branch tomorrow morning.  Chris Burns is on
vacation (it is memorial day in the States) until Monday, so he won't
be able to create the Mac binaries until then.  Most likely, since
David is around the Windows binary will be available shortly after I
tag the release.

I will announce the NumPy 1.1.0 release late Monday night or early on
Tuesday.  Thanks to everyone who worked so hard getting this release
out.  Sorry that the release management was so uneven and frustrating.
 I will be happy to discuss what could have been done differently or

I have tried to keep the release notes up-to-date as we went; but if
you have any time, now would be a great time for a final pass:

Finally, I have also updated Trac so that new tickets default to the
1.2 milestone.  If you create a ticket for 1.1.1, please be sure to
change the milestone from the default.
