Jul 2017-SP1 bugfix release

   Build Environment
     * The Debian and Ubuntu installers have been fixed: there was a file
       missing in the Jul2017 release.
     * Added a new RPM called MonetDB-selinux which provides the SELinux
       policy required to run MonetDB under systemd, especially on Fedora
       26.
     * The Windows installers (*.msi files) are now created using the WiX
       Toolset.
     * The Windows binaries are now built using Visual Studio 2015.
       Because of this, you may need to install the Visual C++
       Redistributable for Visual Studio 2015 before being able to run
       MonetDB.

   Merovingian
     * monetdbd was leaking open file descriptors to the mserver5 process
       it started. This has been fixed.

   MonetDB Common
     * Many functions in GDK are now annotated with the GCC attribute
       __warn_unused_result__ meaning that the compiler will issue a
       warning if the result of the function (usually an indication of an
       error) is not used.

   Bug Fixes
     * 6325: Merge table unusable in other connections
     * 6328: Transactional/multi-connection issues with merge tables
     * 6336: VALUES multiple inserts error
     * 6339: Mserver5 crashes on nested SELECT
     * 6340: sample operator takes effect after the execution of the
       query, expected before
     * 6341: MERGE TABLE issue: Cannot register
     * 6342: MERGE TABLE issue: hang
     * 6344: Spurious errors and assertions (SQLsmith)
     * 6375: MAL profiler truncates JSON objects larger than 8192
       characters
