microPlatform update 0.7

Summary

Zephyr microPlatform changes for 0.7

The most significant change in this update follows the Linux microPlatform switch to a Linux v4.14-based tree. This impacts compatibility with any gateways relying on the old Bluetooth behavior, and also will cause changes to the MAC addresses reported by the Zephyr microPlatform sample applications. Users of the bt-joiner container whitelist feature in the Linux microPlatform will need to update their whitelists. Specifically, the leading D6:E7 in the MAC addresses must be changed to D4:E7.
