This is the first development release leading towards the 1.2 series.

What's new in the libwpe 1.1.0 release?

- Support building libwpe on Windows.
- New API for observing and setting the view backend state.
- Added a new wpe_renderer_backend_egl_get_platform() function which can
  be used to obtain a value which can be passed to eglGetPlatformDisplay()
  and eglGetPlatformDisplayEXT().
- Marked old function names containing the "backend" word as deprecated.
  The symbols are still available, but it is encouraged to use the new
  versions, e.g. prefer wpe_get_major_version() instead of
- Marked function table struct parameters passed to some API functions
  as "const".
- Fixed headers so including <wpe-egl.h> results in <wpe.h> being included
  automatically in the correct order.
- Make instantiation of backends more robust by checking the validity of
  interface pointers obtained from the backend.
