Although it's a point release Bean Validation 1.1 brings a number of important features to Java EE 7. While the most significant of these features is clearly method validation, another very important feature is further alignment with CDI. In Java EE 6 there were a few corner cases left were Bean Validation did not work well with CDI. The most prominent of these gaps was the inability to do injection into custom constraint validators. Projects like Apache CODI and Seam 3 stepped in to fill these gaps. In Java EE 7/Bean Validation 1.1 this issue was properly addressed by making all bean validation artifacts injection officially capable. Romain Manni-Bucau of the Apache TomEE community explains the feature well in a code driven post. There's also the 15-minute Bean Validation 1.1 presentation by specification lead Emmanuel Bernard on the GlassFish videos YouTube channel:

You can also check out the very well written official specification or try things out with the Java EE 7 SDK.
