I have tested on various arches (arm, aarch64, ppc64, ppc64le, s390x,
x86_64 and i686) with different distros (fedora 22 and rhel6/7) pushed
all pending patches to master, updated the portable branch and made sure
that builds and runs fine on rhel5 x86_64. NEWS has been updated to
include some additions for this release. And set the version to 0.162 in
Unless some additional testing reveals any issues I intent to do the
0.162 release tomorrow morning.
