Experimental Docker FAUCET image for Pi

Docker makes it easy to manage installations that can have a lot of dependencies (like Ryu, which FAUCET depends on). There are Docker images for FAUCET for x86 already, but there is now an experimental Docker build for Pi as well.

If you're running Raspbian, you probably need to upgrade Docker itself before you can use the image.

V1.5.0 has just been released (and a new pip package is available).

This release is a significant advance over V1.4.0, benefiting from experience gained at the recent FAUCET PlugFest at LBL, and the deployment at WAND a the University of Waikato.

Among the many changes (including performance and reliability improvements to existing basic/policy based switching, and the test suite which now runs in Docker and supports python3), FAUCET now supports Prometheus, and both IPv4 and IPv6 routing are improved (the latter now supporting RAs).

It is strongly recommended that you upgrade to this release.

While V1.5.0 passes all systems tests under python3, testing under python3 is still not complete. You may prefer to stay python2 for now. V1.5.1 will move to python3 and drop python2 support.
