We have tagged RC1 for 2.2!  We have many bug-fixes, performance
improvements and new features in this release!

2.2 will be a 'long-term support' release and we will do bug-fix release on
it until 2020.

Aiming for a final release in 2 weeks (Mar 2).   We'll sort out over the
next week if we want to do an RC2 or not.  I have created a v2.2.x branch
for managing the 2.2.0 release work and the 2.2.x series going forward.

With this tag, the master branch is python 3 only.  There will be a follow
up email to discuss if we are py3.5+ or py3.6+, for now lets stay with 3.5+.

As part of this I have cleaned out the upstream branches and merged them
all up:

 - master: mpl3.0 work and new features, python3 only
 - v2.2.x : v2.2.x series work.  Only bug-fixes and documentation updates,
python 2.7, 3.4+
 - v2.1.2-doc : documentation changes only to rebuild the current stable
docs.  When 2.2.0 is out this will be replaced by v2.2.0-doc

Thanks to everyone who worked on this release!
