Searchlight RC1 released

Image
Yahooo!!! We just released Searchlight Stein RC1 last week [1][2]. The stable/stein branch has been created for all of the projects. Here are the versions:

- searchlight: 6.0.0.0rc1
- searchlight-ui: 6.0.0.0rc1
- python-searchlightclient: 1.5.0

Moreover, we also added some highlights for Searchlight in this Stein cycle  [3]. There will be not much going on for the rest of the cycle, only minor changes. And, since we're busy preparing for the next term with more features to fulfill the Searchlight's vision [4], we will focus on designing the architecture and make Searchlight more stable.

BTW, I will continue serving as Searchlight's PTL for Train :) So, let's rock it!!!

Following are the major changes we made at Stein-3:
TC vision reflection [1]: this is a good practice to compare Searchlight vision with the TC vision [12] to make sure the team is going in the right direction which designed by the OpenStack community.Replace httplib2 with requests [2]: thi…
