Dear community,

we are making progress on our way to get RIOT ready for the upcoming 
release: I proudly present the first release candidate 2016.04-RC1 [1].

For taking the next steps, I encourage (and challenge) everyone, to put 
an extra effort into getting this release out of the door. Most pressing 
tasks are:
- running all the tests as specified in the release-spec repository [2]
- run your favorite setups and make sure they (still) work
- review, test, and merge the open fix PRs [3] (27 to go)
- fix the open issues (or at least the critical ones) [4] (31 to go)

Out of these issues, the NDP bug [5] showing in conjunction with the 
newly merged, ethos based border router [6] seems to be the most 
critical one! IMHO here we need at least some king of work-around for 
the release, as nodes that can be addressed for more than ~15min should 
not be something optional...

So keep it up everyone!
