ns-3.27 release plans for this week

Tom Henderson-2
Hi all, I plan to prepare a release candidate by the end of the week,
and hopefully release ns-3.27 next week.  Please coordinate with me if
you want to prioritize something in the tracker that is not in last call
state already.

Ankit has made a lot of progress in converting our bindings scanning
framework to CastXML, but it is not quite finished, so I intend to make
the release by next week and then update the ns-3.27 release at a later
date.

We have made several merges in the past week or so to try to get to a
release candidate, but the various C++11 features that we are starting
to use have broken the bindings scanning toolchain based on gccxml.  One
patch yesterday broke also the bindings compilation
(https://www.nsnam.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=2668).

We are trying to resolve this with some additional changes, but I think
it is most prudent now to hold the release until we have the ability to
scan all modules with the new framework.  Ankit Deepak is working on
this, and we'll try to provide an update in the next day or two.

In the meantime, I am working on patches to these issues:

2733:  IdealWifiManager with multiple spatial streams
2673:  Run-time channel switch for SpectrumWifiPhy

Stefano and Sebastien are also working on some final issues.  If any
other maintainers want to get some additional patches in, please
coordinate with me.

For the moment, users of ns-3-dev should either disable python bindings
or checkout a slightly older revision (e.g. f0b1720f5868) if Python is
needed.

Thanks,
Tom
