The 2016Q4 branch has been created. It means that the next update on the
quarterly packages will be on the 2016Q4 branch.

A lot of things happened in the last three months:
- pkg 1.8.7
- New USES: grantlee kde linux
- Removed USES: (none)
- New keywords: javavm
- Removed keywords: (none)
- Default version of linux added as c6
New versions of some important ports:
- Firefox 49.0
- Firefox-esr 45.4.0esr
- Chromium 52.0.2743.116
- gcc 4.8.5
Some major behind-the-scene changes:
- PHP extensions now install their own .ini in /usr/local/etc/php
- new GH_SUBDIR variable for USE_GITHUB
- NONE license and full support for Creative Commons licenses added

Next quarterly package builds will start on Tuesday, October 4th and
