If you haven’t tried v1.8.0 out yet, please give it a try and give us feedback. If everything “just works™”, please let us know that too. Your feedback is really important! If no more bugs are reported, the final release will be done next week.
To try it out, you can either compile the v1.8 branch from source OR use the precompiled files, as described in our install page. But if you are on Windows, you can simply use the installer.
Happy New Year!
