A new DPDK release candidate is ready for testing:

It is the first release candidate for DPDK 16.11.
It happens a bit late, though there are still some features missing.
This version must be released before mid-November.
Therefore we have 3 weeks to make the validation, fixes and decide
which remaining features can enter without hurting the validation process.
The easy decision would be to stop accepting large patches and new features.

The release notes shall be completed:
Some highlights:
	- EAL device object rework
	- more offloads
	- improved vhost
	- virtio for NEON
	- new crypto libraries
	- usual updates of drivers
	- ivshmem library removal

Please start now discussing the changes you plan to do for
the next release cycle (17.02).

Thank you everyone
