NWB:N 2.0 beta (11/10/2017, Complete)

This is a first public beta release of the new version NWB:N. The intent of this beta release is to enable early adopters to start exploring the new format and software. As development is ongoing, there may still be bugs and further changes to the APIs as well as the format are still planed between this beta and the first full release of NWB:N2.0. As such backward compatibility cannot be promised at this point yet.
