Thank you to everyone!

Integration cycle for release 1.8.0 should start after DPDK summit
(September 8). A release candidate (rc1) will integrate yet properly reviewed
patches. Then there will be a last chance (rc2) to integrate new features.

A general documentation effort is ongoing. I'd like that anyone feeling
concerned check its doxygen comments and see how it builds with "make doc".

Thanks for all the efforts
