+1 absolutely @jwnasambu, quite an achievement!

We were in the process of upgrading a forked distribution to be in line with Ref App 2.7, this is now pushing us to do the last mile and be on par with Ref App 2.8 right away (cc @zouchine.)

Thanks for the great work!

Thanks @jwnasambu for your relentless hard work.

@darius , Guess it’s time to update addons to include a list of the ref 2.8 apps :smile:

@jwnasambu Congs, thanks for the perseverence.

Thank @jwnasambu for getting this out!

On the release notes page, the “Checkout JIRA Issues here” link points to a reference application 2.6 ticket instead of the list that made it into 2.8

The release date is also missing on the release notes page.

Still on the release notes pages, under “Highlights of Reference Application 2.8.0”, you should also include the features listed on the road map

Congrats, thanks @jwnasambu and all the contributors

dkayiwa thanks for pointing out the issues am trying to work on them by still my head is too saturated but i promise to embark on it as soon as possible.

I have created the link pointing out the RefApp 2.8 tickets but still the 2.6 ticket is reflected. How can i solve it i have tried several means all in vain.

@jwnasambu thanks for your leadership in this release. Thanks to the community contributors for all of their engagement.

No. I have a total of 17 tickets in this release. 10 are in ACCEPTED state, 5 WAITING FOR TEST and 2 in a WAITING FOR SHOWCASE state. What should i do with the 7 which are not in ACCEPTED state?
