Thank you to everyone!

We tried to integrate almost all planned features in this release.
But waiting for every feature to be ready, leads to a late delivery.
>From now, the integration cycle will be different because based on deadlines.
This is explained on roadmap page: http://dpdk.org/dev/roadmap#cycle
New features must be submitted before end of January.
If not properly reviewed and acked on 20th February, feature won't be in 2.0.

For now, let's celebrate this new release!
