+Ring Peek Zero Copy API
+-----------------------
+
+Along with the advantages of the peek APIs, zero copy APIs provide the ability
+to copy the data to the ring memory directly without the need for temporary
+storage (for ex: array of mbufs on the stack).
+
+These APIs make it possible to split public enqueue/dequeue API into 3 phases:
+
+* enqueue/dequeue start
+
+* copy data to/from the ring
+
+* enqueue/dequeue finish
+
+Note that this API is available only for two sync modes:
+
+*   Single Producer/Single Consumer (SP/SC)
+
+*   Multi-producer/Multi-consumer with Head/Tail Sync (HTS)
+
+It is a user responsibility to create/init ring with appropriate sync modes.
+Following is an example of usage:
+
+.. code-block:: c
+
+    /* Reserve space on the ring */
+    n = rte_ring_enqueue_zc_burst_start(r, 32, &zcd, NULL);
+    /* Pkt I/O core polls packets from the NIC */
+    if (n != 0) {
+        nb_rx = rte_eth_rx_burst(portid, queueid, zcd->ptr1, zcd->n1);
+        if (nb_rx == zcd->n1 && n != zcd->n1)
+            nb_rx = rte_eth_rx_burst(portid, queueid, zcd->ptr2,
+							n - zcd->n1);
+        /* Provide packets to the packet processing cores */
+        rte_ring_enqueue_zc_finish(r, nb_rx);
+    }
+
+Note that between ``_start_`` and ``_finish_`` no other thread can proceed
+with enqueue(/dequeue) operation till ``_finish_`` completes.

      =======================================================
 
+* **Added zero copy APIs for rte_ring.**
+
+  For rings with producer/consumer in ``RTE_RING_SYNC_ST``, ``RTE_RING_SYNC_MT_HTS``
+  modes, these APIs split enqueue/dequeue operation into three phases
+  (enqueue/dequeue start, copy data to/from ring, enqueue/dequeue finish).
+  Along with the advantages of the peek APIs, these provide the ability to
+  copy the data to the ring memory directly without the need for temporary
+  storage.
+
 * **Added write combining store APIs.**
 
   Added ``rte_write32_wc`` and ``rte_write32_wc_relaxed`` APIs
