+RIOT is based on the following design principles: energy-efficiency, soft
+real-time capabilities, small memory footprint, modularity, and uniform API
+access, independent of the underlying hardware (with partial POSIX compliance).
+
+RIOT is developed by an international open-source community which is
+independent of specific vendors (e.g. similarly to the Linux community) and is
+licensed with a non-viral copyleft license (LGPLv2.1), which allows indirect
+business models around the free open-source software platform provided by RIOT.
+
+
+About this release:
+===================
+
+The 2019.04 release includes a number of new features including improved
+support for ESP boards, porting of riotboot to a number of new platforms,

> The idea was to reflect improved functionality on existing boards, rather than implying that we have added new boards

Hm ... IMO, noticeable improvements are only esp-now network device driver and freed RAM for ESP8266 which are listed under the `Boards` section. I would prefer to remove it.
