+2017.02-rc1, Released February 11th, 2017
+
+ Fixes all over the tree and new features.
+
+ Infrastructure:
+
+ - numerous improvements to support reproducible builds
+
+ - new waf-package package infrastructure to support packages
+ that use the Waf build system. 6 packages converted to
+ this infrastructure.
+
+ - add support for the OpenRISC CPU architecture
+
+ - merge description of the ARM and ARM64 options, and add
+ support for selecting a specific ARM64 core
+
+ Toolchain:
+
+ - major rework of the external toolchain support. It is now
+ split into several packages, one per external toolchain,
+ and a common infrastructure.
+
+ - important fix for musl to prevent a conflict between musl
+ and kernel headers (fixes the build of numerous packages
+ with musl)
+
+ - uClibc-ng bumped to 1.0.22, and therefore enable uClibc
+ for ARM64, mips32r6 and mips64r6
+
+ - add gdb 7.12.1, and switch to gdb 7.11 as the default
+
+ - Linaro toolchains updated to 2016.11, ARC toolchain
+ components updated to arc-2016.09, MIPS Codescape
+ toolchains bumped to 2016.05-06, CodeSourcery AMD64 bumped
+ to 2016.11-19
+
+ - remove Analog Devices toolchain for the Blackfin
+ architecture
