Resin 5/Baratine basically is the focus. We're trying to get out a 
usable alpha.

Our current target for the first alpha is end of Q2.

Unlike Resin 4 where the early releases forced early adopters to adapt 
to the large changes and refactors, we decided to hold Resin 5 internal 
until we have a clean and relatively stable release.

The changes internally are fairly major (hopefully the externals will 
not look that major, except for a simplification in deployment, 
particularly in cloud environments.)

For example:

   * The internal database for distributed caching/sessions is 
completely revamped to a more modern architecture, because the old one 
wasn't scaling under heavy load.
   * HTTP/2.0, including using HTTP/2.0 for load balancing (it's more 
efficient than the older HMUX).
   * Internal service model revamped from BAM to Baratine, using what we 
learned from Resin 4.
   * Cloud/clustering messaging revamp, again based on experience with 
Resin 4.
   * Dynamic server/heartbeat revamp.
   * Distribution/config simplification.
   * Updates to web profile specs.
   * Substantial accumulated technical debt cleanup.
