A minor release focused on bugfixes and minor improvements.
Upgrades should happen transparently, but downgrading back to
1.7.0 will likely cause problems for lei users (and only lei

lei users may experience duplicate messages in Maildirs if attempting to
downgrade from 1.8.0 to 1.7.x.  public-inbox-* tools are unaffected and
may downgrade freely.


  Numerous test fixes thanks to NixOS developers.

  Long-running daemons are more robust in case of corrupt blobs
  or crashes of git-cat-file processes

  PublicInbox::WWW: all CR are removed before LF, fixing display of
  CR-CR-LF messages.

  Solver supports SHA-256 code repositories (inbox and lei store support
  is still pending).

Internal updates:

  Reduced dependencies on Inline::C for Linux users; Linux users may
  now use lei with neither Inline::C nor Socket::MsgHdr installed.

New features:

  The --dangerous flag is now supported in public-inbox-index and
  public-inbox-extindex to use the Xapian::DB_DANGEROUS flag for initial
  indexes.  This may reduce SSD/HDD wear at the expense of disallowing
  concurrency and data integrity in case of an unexpected shutdown.

See for what the future holds.
