Collect 1.7.0, JavaRosa 2.2.0, and Validate 1.5.0 released

Hi all,

ODK Collect 1.7.0 was released to the Play Store this weekend and is
now available from the website. We also updated JavaRosa, the form
rendering library that Collect is built on and Validate, a tool for
verifying ODK XForms.

The highlight for this month is the bulk configuration feature added
to Collect by Shobhit. Read more about how to use it on the blog:
