Bex 1.1 released

I happy to announce that bex 1.1 is out and available for download. I decided to follow the release early, release often principle, so this release doesn't contain that much new. The biggest change is the support for embedded expressions in strings. This feature was requested by a few people and I needed it myself as well. So now you can write things like:

foo = "world"
print("hello ${foo}")

Inside the expression quotes ${} you can have basically any valid bex expression. Combined with multiline strings, this feature makes it very convenient to generate formatted text. Full list of changes is availbale at sourceforge.

I also updated the manual to describe the currently supported built-ins and extensions. Happy scripting!
