Zephyr v2.7.0-rc2

Christopher Friedt

We are pleased to announce Zephyr 2.7.0-rc2 \o/

I'm going to nickname this release "Spoon Boy". That's not in any
official capacity. It just happens to be close to when The Matrix 4
trailer was released.

"Do not try and bend the spoon. That's impossible. Instead... only try
to realize the truth..
There is no spoon.. it is not the spoon that bends, it is only yourself."
-- Spoon Boy, The Matrix, 1999

This is the second release candidate in our stabilization period and
brings several bug-fixes and additional tests. Please see the release
page below for a full list of changes between v2.7.0-rc1 and


Just as a reminder, there are currently a disproportionate amount of
low-priority issues. The good news is that we have done very well to
keep on track for high priority and medium priority issues. For anyone
that has a few free cycles, please look at open issues that are
assigned to you and please consider picking off any low-hanging fruit
in the coming week.

I also wanted to say a special thank-you to Maureen Helm for all of
her contributions to Zephyr under the NXP umbrella. We're very
fortunate that Maureen will continue on as a member of the Zephyr
community as Sensor Driver Maintainer and Collaborator on the ARM

David Leach is taking over maintainership for NXP from here on, so
thank-you to you as well David.

Lastly, thanks to all who contributed to this release!
