MobileFirst CLI v8.0.0-2016101416 released

A new MobileFirst CLI build has been released for MobileFirst Foundation 8.0.

In this release, in addition to a few important fixes, you can now also build multiple adapters with a single command. If you have a folder containing multiple adapters, use the mfpev adapter build all to build all adapters one after the other, and mfpdev adapter deploy all to deploy all adapters.

Inclusive terminology note: The Mobile First Platform team is making changes to support the IBM® initiative to replace racially biased and other discriminatory language in our code and content with more inclusive language. While IBM values the use of inclusive language, terms that are outside of IBM's direct influence are sometimes required for the sake of maintaining user understanding. As other industry leaders join IBM in embracing the use of inclusive language, IBM will continue to update the documentation to reflect those changes.
