TCF 1.1 New & Noteworthy

Perhaps the biggest improvement in TCF 1.1 is bug fixes and robustness, thanks to TCF being tested and shipped in commercial products by Wind River and Xilinx. A total of 195 bugs were fixed for TCF 1.1 - see this bugzilla report for defects fixed per component.

The TCF project team would like to take this opportunity to thank all our 42 contributors as per the approved IP Log for TCF 1.1 !

The searchable git logs for the agent and the TCF main repository provide more insight into all changs made.
