  * Website related (automatic scripts would be nice...):
      o Write news item.
      o Update "getting started" page.
      o Update files (networkit.zip, PDF, user guide,...) and their links.
      o Update "documentation" page, C++ and Python documentations.

  * Misc: Write a mail including release notes to the mailing list.
