NetBSD 7.0_RC1

On behalf of the NetBSD project, it is my pleasure to announce the first
release candidate of NetBSD 7.0.

Many changes have been made since 6.0.  Here are a few highlights:
- Greatly improved support for modern Intel and Radeon graphics hardware
  through a port of the Linux DRM/KMS code.  Most X.Org components have
  been updated as well.
- ARM multiprocessor support
- Support for new ARM boards, some of which are listed below:
  * Raspberry Pi 2
  * BeagleBoard-xM
  * BeagleBone
  * BeagleBone Black
  * Banana Pi
  * Cubieboard 2
  * Cubietruck
  * Merii Hummingbird
  * Marvell ARMADA XP
  * GlobalScale MiraBox
  * Kobo
  * Sharp Netwalker PC-Z1
- GPT support in sysinst
- Lua kernel scripting
- Multiprocessor USB stack
- Many improvements to NPF, the NetBSD packet filter
- GCC 4.8.4 (and optionally, LLVM/Clang 3.6.1)
