Dear RIOT developers and users,

we are happy to announce the seventh official release of the RIOT:

------------------------------- * RIOT 2016.04 * 

This release adds support for two additional network stacks: lwIP and emb6.
A bunch of additional protocols are now available, P2P-RPL in the GNRC
network stack, Ethernet-over-Serial (ethos). Murdock, the new, blazing fast
RIOT CI is now available to significantly speed up code merging procedures.

This release also adds support for a number of new boards and sensors 
and a new
tool for automated border router setup is now provided which greatly 
that setup for newbies as well as for old-timers. Last but not least: this
release includes a number of bug fixes, mostly about stabilizing and 
the networking capabilities of RIOT.

About 470 pull requests with about 1196 commits have been merged since 
the last
release and 127 additional issues have been solved. 55 people 
contributed code
in 124 days. 1521 files have been touched with ~91700 insertions and ~42200
