Release 4.3

RIOT-OS Support

Work is already in progress to update the libcoap package for RIOT-OS.


Retransmission Tasks for POSIX

The lwip and Contiki versions are able to handle retransmissions automatically. There is code that does this for POSIX as well, but it needs more testing and a fallback implementation in case the RT timer API is not available. This might also imply making the libcoap core MT-safe.

This is the first release with the new directory structure and complete autotools-support for configuration and build.
