skiboot-5.6.0 was released on Wednesday 24th May 2017. It is the new
stable release of skiboot, taking over from the 5.5 release, first
released on April 7th 2017. It is the first release done in a regular
six week release cycle, mirroring that of op-build.

skiboot-5.6.0 contains all bug fixes as of skiboot-5.4.4 and
skiboot-5.1.19 (the currently maintained stable releases). We do not
currently expect to do any 5.5.x stable releases.

For how the skiboot stable releases work, see Skiboot stable tree
rules and releases for details.

This release is a good level set of POWER9 support for bringup
activities. If you are doing bringup, it is strongly suggested you
continue to follow skiboot master.

Changes in skiboot-5.6.0

See changes in the release candidates:

* skiboot-5.6.0-rc1

The final 5.6.0 release has no functional changes over the 5.6.0-rc2.
