LinuxCNC 2.8.1 is released.

02 Dec 2020 21:42 #190908 by andypugh
Version 2.8.1 is largely a bugfix release based on 2.8.0. One
exception is the porting back of drivers for Mesa 7i95, 7i97 and 7c80.

This should be offered as an automatic update on most systems.

At this time the installer ISO and Pi image will still install the 2.8.0.
Which should the be updated.
A new version of both is likely in the near future, but for reasons
unrelated to LinuxCNC (mainly to do with requests for specific
utilities and a network manager that is actually useful)
New installs should use the existing installers and then update.
