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