A new Windows installer for mbed CLI

Windows installer for mbed CLI

As some of you are aware, we provide a command line tool called mbed CLI for mbed OS. mbed CLI allows you to carry out actions such as creating, importing, publishing, and building projects. Typically, you might want to use this if you're looking for a lightweight way of working with mbed OS outside of a GUI.

To make life easier for Windows users we've just released an installer, which handles the dependencies necessary for using mbed CLI, such as Python, GCC, Mercurial, Git, and the mbed Serial Driver.
