Starting work towards the upcoming 2.8 release
The tech team has started the process for stabilizing the upcoming 2.8 release. In practical terms this means a new dev-v2.8 branch that will eventually become the released version. Over the next following weeks we need as much testing as possible to ensure we catch any issues.
To give 2.8 beta a try you can use the staging site:

You can flag any issues in the main repo issue tracker.
