We're pleased to announce the 0.10.0 release of c-lightning, named by @jsarenik.

* In regtest mode, we don't care that bitcoind doesn't give any fee
  estimates, but use the minimum.

Highlights for the Network

  spec, with backwards compatibility for older nodes.
* `experimental-dual-fund` config option enables the draft dual funding
  option for compatible nodes, which includes RBF upgrades for opening

Highlights for Developers

* All hooks are now registerable by multiple plugins at once.
* `experimental-shutdown-wrong-funding` allows remote nodes to close
  incorrectly opened channels using the new wrong_funding option to
