Dear all,

I'm happy to announce the v0.8 release of GNU Taler.

Major changes in v0.8 include:
- WebExtension wallet now works with GNU IceCat
- Wallet(-core) now supports backup and restore
- Optional inventory management by the merchant backend
- Product image previews in contracts
- Point-of-sale and cashier Apps for F-droid
- Better isolation of online private keys
- Better isolation of sensitive exchange configuration options
- and much more

Some of the major changes are based on the security audit performed by
Code Blau in 2020. Addressing these recommendations was done as part of
the NLnet Grant 2019-06-28 funded by the European Commissions great Next
Generation Internet initiative under grant agreement number 825310. In
particular, Code Blau had recommended strengthening the isolation of the
private keys, which is now implemented using the taler-exchange-secmod-*
binaries that can run under a different user ID than the network-facing
taler-exchange-httpd process.
