Zephyr 2.2.0-rc1 has been tagged
Hi Zephyr developers,
The the first Zephyr 2.2 release candidate (v2.2.0-rc1) has been tagged.
All required features scheduled for the 2.2 release are now merged into master. As of now we are in the stabilization phase for the 2.2 release; the merge window is closed for new features and enhancements, and will remain closed until the release date. We will also start working on filling in the existing skeleton for the release notes.
During the stabilization period only bug-fix, documentation, and stabilization-related patches may be merged to master. Additional features or enhancements for the 2.2 release will require approval by TSC.
As we need to reduce bug counts for the release, you are all encouraged to submit PRs that close existing bug reports, and to help reviewing such PRs submitted by other contributors or maintainers.
Testing Zephyr master branch during the stabilisation phase is also requested; please, test the code base and file bug reports so they can be addressed before the release deadline.

More details about Zephyr releases is found here: https://github.com/zephyrproject-rtos/zephyr/wiki/Program-Management
The final release is tentatively scheduled for February 28th.
Thank you to everybody who contributed to this release!
