Congratulations to the whole team!  Great effort with great results!


Thus spake Christian Grothoff (grothoff@gnunet.org):

> 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
>   (https://bugs.gnunet.org/changelog_page.php?version_id=294)
> 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.
