Mender 2.0 released: Application updates

We are happy to announce the production releases of Mender 2.0.0 and 1.7.1!

The focus for Mender 2.0 is support for Application updates, with full control and customizability over how a software is installed. This makes Mender unique for providing both robust system- and application level updates and it is this combination that enables Mender to solve all your needs for OTA updates.

The key features of Mender 2.0 are covered below, and you can see the detailed items in the Mender 2.0 release notes.
