ROOT v6.20/00 is out!

The ROOT team is happy (and a bit proud!) to announce the release of
ROOT v6.20/00! It took a while -  but now it's ready for you!

* The new prompt functionality `root[0] .help TTree::Draw` does what
you'd expect it to do: open ROOT's documentation on TTree::Draw in a
browser window (or, if remote, show the URL so you can click it.) We
hope you'll enjoy that!

* RooFit has lots of improvements in this release, from considerable
speed-ups to a myriad of fixed bugs.

* ROOT does not show its splash screen during start-up anymore. In case
you miss it, just run root -a.

* PyROOT receives a major upgrade in v6.22. You'll need to get prepared
by a couple of Python code changes on your side, notably when
instantiating class templates from Python. The release notes spell out
the details.

And many, many bugs were fixed! See
<> for details such as release
notes and downloads.

As always, thank you very much for your reports, patches, reproducers,
and simply for using ROOT!

Please come to the *ROOT workshop*, June 8-11, 2020, at Fermilab
Submit your abstract soon, and please spread the news about the
workshop, especially among young physicists.

Best regards,
Axel, for the ROOT team
