There were a lot of interesting dicussions during this release cycle which led
to create and improve the guidelines document. The drawback is that several
important design choices were done late. That's why the deadline for feature
acceptance (i.e. rc1) was extended.
The goal is now to make the release 2.1.0 available on August 12, with a new
release candidate each week. Hope the -rc4 will be the last one.

Please test this release candidate with your hardware and your preferred apps.
Thank you everyone for making each version better!
