release: / 1.6.0

Github source: 7f30ec29 or master branch

Changes from v1.5.4 to v1.6.0

IMPORTANT: If you use the examples/aws documentation to deploy a BOSH director and a Diego-backed CF to AWS, please be aware that some of the arguments to the deploy_aws_environment script have changed to be more explicit about actions to take on the AWS CloudFormation stack and the BOSH director deployment. The instructions and script also now use the new v2 BOSH CLI and the bosh-deployment repository to deploy the BOSH director. If you have previously deployed your director with bosh-init, bosh create-env in the new CLI will understand its state file, but you may need to transfer some configuration to new stubs manually.
