Folks:

There are two known regressions where Tahoe-LAFS v1.8.0 does something
worse that v1.7.1 did. We'll probably release a Tahoe-LAFS v1.8.1 that
fixes those in a week or two:

http://tahoe-lafs.org/trac/tahoe-lafs/milestone/1.8.1

Also, while we are at it, let us try to package up Tahoe-LAFS better
for more users. We got a lot of feedback after the v1.8.0 release from
people who tried to installed it and had problems.

Here is the description of the goal of v1.8.1 from the milestone:

 *   Fix any regressions or serious problems in 1.8.0.
 *   Build binaries for more dependent packages for more operating
systems and host them on http://tahoe-lafs.org so builds will not try
to build them from source.
 *   Help and encourage operating systems packages: wiki:OSPackages

(No unnecessary improvements, not even Unfinished Business—those will
go into 1.9.0. Well okay maybe we could finish some Unfinished
Business if it seems plausible that users of 1.8.0 would be surprised
and dismayed by the behavior in 1.8.0 compared to 1.7.0, but I doubt
it.)

Join in! :-)

Regards,

Zooko
