Here are release candidates 1 for LTTng kernel and user-space tracers 2.10.
This release is named "KeKriek", which is a sour mashed golden wheat ale
brewed by the Dunham microbrewery in Quebec.

The new features included are:

- A new "blocking" mode for LTTng-UST (it has been requested for a while).
  It blocks application tracing when buffers are full (for "discard mode
  tracing") rather than discarding events, until a user-specified timeout
  is reached (or indefinitely). It affects only applications launched with
  this environment variable set. See lttng-ust(3) for usage information.

- Add support for multiple star-globbing patterns in LTTng-UST and LTTng-modules.
  Now events can be enabled with a pattern containing many wildcards, e.g.
  'sche*_sw*t*h'. Those can also be used when comparing strings with filter,
  lttng enable-event -u myevent --filter 'myfield == "abc*d*e*fg"'

- LTTng modules adds support for kernels 4.10 and 4.11 (which has been
  backported to 2.8 and 2.9 stable branches).

- LTTng modules adds the task CPU in threads state dump, improving precision
  of the scheduler model.

- LTTng modules now collects extend socketpair system call tracing data.
