[MirageOS-devel] Release of mirage 2.6.0

Hi all,

I've just released a new version of Mirage (2.6.0) which support attaching 
files via a read-only tar-formatted block devices, and simplify the work to do 
to attach block devices ([1] has been updated with more details). It also 
separate more cleanly the ARP layer from the IP layer in the network stack, so 
you might need to update to unikernels if you are building STACKV4 
implementation yourself.

The full list of changes is available bellow. Thanks to all the contributors.
