Sorry, Wido :) I missed that part.

    That's what I said in my e-mail :-) But yes, I agree with you, this
    might be a good time to bump it to 5.0
    With that we would:
    - Drop creation of new Basic Networking Zones
    - Support IPv6 in shared IPv6 networks
    - Java 9?
    - Drop support for Ubuntu 12.04
    - Other fancy stuff?
    - Support ConfigDrive in all scenarios properly
    How would that sound?
