I have pushed v1.3.0-rc3:


There are just some minor fixes since the rc1:

  - Fix an issue with the format of the version for MyNewt
  - Fix flash base addresses for non-memory-mapped flash
  - Shrink the nrf51_pca10028 footprint
  - Fix an issue where mcuboot couldn't recover for a corrupt trailer
    magic value

If there are no more issues we will release v1.3.0 final in a day or
