Check out the NEWS file to see what will be new in 1.8.0. You can also see the list of commits included since 1.8.0-rc3 here.

As a release candidate, this should not be considered production-ready. Rather, it’s intended to give users, especially package developers, a chance to try our their code with 1.8.0 prior to a full release. Note that 1.8 on Travis, AppVeyor, and Cirrus now refers to 1.8.0-rc4. On GitHub Actions, use ~1.8.0-0.

Let us know in the issue tracker if you run into any issues. Please note that any bugs you may encounter should be posted there rather than being discussed in this thread to ensure visibility to the developers.
