A new DPDK release candidate is ready for testing:

It is the first release candidate for DPDK 17.02.

There were a lot of things not ready until yesterday.
Fortunately things have been fixed in a rush for most of you.
Some features are still missing but could be integrated in RC2 if
there is no real impact on validation tests in progress.
This version must be released at mid-February, after China holidays.
We do not have so much time, so the focus will be on stabilization.

You can read the release notes in progress:
Some highlights:
	- new ethdev API for hardware filtering
	- new Solarflare networking driver
	- new ARM crypto driver
	- new Elastic Flow Distributor library
	- virtio-user/kernel-vhost as exception path

Please start now discussing the changes you plan to do for
the next release cycle (17.05).

Thank you everyone
and Happy New Year
