The new features for 18.08 must be submitted during next week,
in order to be reviewed and integrated during June.
The next release is expected to happen at the beginning of August.
The deadlines will be more strictly respected than for 18.05.
Because of shorter release cycle, the next release will be smaller.

Thanks everyone
It was a very special release

Venky Venkatesan, the creator and "Father of DPDK" passed away
in early April of this year.

Venky spent more than two decades working at Intel as an engineer
and architect attaining the well-deserved position of Intel Fellow.
His work spanned every aspect of networking and ranged from network
processors to ASICs to FPGAs to multi-core Intel architecture platforms.
In the mid to late 2000s, as Intel was moving away from network processors,
Venky came up with the idea of what would eventually become the
Data Plane Development Kit. He is known as "The Father of DPDK".

To honor Venky and his tremendous contributions, not only to the DPDK
community, but also to the networking and communications industry at large,
we are naming the DPDK 18.05 "The Venky Release".
If you haven't read the memorial the community posted on Venky,
please take a look: http://dpdk.org/about/Venky.
We would also remind you of the GoFundMe memorial fund
that has been established as a college fund
for his two young daughters that he leaves behind.
