Release 2017.04

Dear RIOTers,

we are happy to announce the 11th official release of RIOT:

----------------------- * RIOT 2017.04 * -----------------------

This release provides a lot of new features, fixes and enhancements. Among these has been a huge cleanup regarding cppcheck and documentation, and we're pleased to announce that all remaining doxygen and cppcheck warnings have been fixed. We're also proud to present a Virtual File System layer and integration of the SPIFFS file system. A lot of work has gone into support for STMicroelectronics's Nucleo family, with RIOT now supporting 28 (up from 13) Nucleo boards. And as always, there was a lot of under-the-hood cleanup, bug fixing and documentation work.

About 200 pull requests with about 562 commits have been merged since the last release and about 23 issues have been solved. 32 people contributed with code in 91 days. 2697 files have been touched with 716950 insertions and 492623 deletions.

You can download the RIOT release from Github by cloning the repository [1] or by downloading the tarball [2], and look up the release notes for further details [3].

Thanks everyone for your contributions, discussions, testing efforts, and keep RIOTing!

Happy hacking, Kaspar

Congrats RIOTers!!

Thanks to Kaspar for his management and efforts on automating the testing.

For info, I just succeeded to get some UDP packets from an iotlab-m3 node running contiki, however, I didn’t succeed sending packets to it… maybe I didn’t succeed to deactivate the mac and csma drivers… I’ll try for the next release!


Hey Kaspar,

I just realized that according to the last release still has 94 open issues. Shouldn't the be moved to the next release or have the milestone tag removed at all?

I would like to close the milestone ASAP.

Cheers, Oleg

Hi Oleg,

Thanks for pointing this. I allowed myself to move the remaining PR/issues to the 2017.07 milestone. In the meantime, I created the milestone for 2017.10.
