pr2_controllers 1.1.0 has been released.  This is an **unstable**
development release to try out features considered for inclusion in
pr2_controllers 1.2.  The 1.1.0 release contains some additional
configuration options and a new joint trajectory controller with an
action interface built in.

Change list: http://www.ros.org/wiki/pr2_controllers/ChangeList

  - The projector controller now updates the projector current setting
each time through the realtime loop. Otherwise, some lockout
conditions were causing the current to be set to zero, and it was
never being reset to the proper value.
  - pr2_controllers_msgs now autogenerates its action messages during
build step. Removed the autogenerated files from version control
  - pr2_gripper_action now depends explicitly on pr2_mechanism_model.
  - Upped the tolerance for determining that a joint is stopped in the
joint trajectory action to handle jittering in gazebo.
  - Removed push_back from the realtime part of the calibration
controllers (#3949)
  - Made the stall velocity threshold configurable in pr2_gripper_action (#4073)
  - Created the joint trajectory action controller, which combines the
joint spline trajectory controller and the joint trajectory action.
  - Upped tolerance for determining if the controller is following a
different goal in the pr2_gripper_action (#4076)
  - Joint trajectory action controller now accepts goals with a
timestamp of 0 (#3896)
