Release 2017.10

Dear RIOTers,

we are happy to announce the 13th official release of RIOT:

----------------------- * RIOT 2017.10 * -----------------------

This release provides fixes, code cleanup and improved documentation, as well as enhancements.

Most notable, this release is bringing RIOT a step closer to supporting over-the-air-updates by containing initial support for MCUBoot. Furthermore, it adds support for some new platforms (e.g. arduino-mkzero, nucleos, and frdm-k22f), drivers (e.g. my9221, apa102, ds1307), and of course a large number of bug fixes (e.g. `make buildtest` now working properly, various fixes to `xtimer`).

About 230 pull requests with about 442 commits have been merged since the last release and about 13 issues have been solved. 45 people contributed with code in 56 days. 1395 files have been touched with 211720 insertions and 65729 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].

Again, a big thank you to all the people who helped getting this release on its way and who constantly work on making RIOT a better OS.

Keep on RIOTing and cheers, Hauke
