A new DPDK release candidate is ready for testing:

The release notes should be complete now:

What's new in -rc3?
	- proper runtime directory
	- consistent checks in offload API
	- compressdev API
	- Intel compressdev software driver
	- eventdev crypto adapter
	- NXP devices blacklisting
	- DPAA2 QDMA raw driver
	- DPAA2 Command Interface raw driver
	- Intel FPGA bus
	- BPF

Some planned features are postponed to 18.08:
	- Hyper-V bus and NetVSC driver
	- testpmd simulation of noisy host

It is a big release candidate (322 patches),
but next one is expected to include only some bug fixes,
tooling or documentation updates.

Everybody is tired by this release which lasts too long.
So let's try to minimize new risks in order to close it soon.
We can target to make -rc4, -rc5 and finally release on 25th of May.

As usual, please test this release candidate as much as you can,
and check for possible behaviour or performance regressions.

There are some open bugs to check in bugzilla:

Thank you everyone
