(Gmail added some undesirable extra characters that didn't get stripped in
the original announcement, so I'm reposting this cleaned up for clarity)

DragonFly 5.8.1 is released - here's the release page:


And here's the tag with a list of the commits:


The normal ISO and IMG files are available for download and install,
plus an uncompressed ISO image for those installing remotely.

If updating from 5.8.0:

> cd /usr/src
> git pull
> make build-all
> make install-all
> make upgrade

If upgrading from a version older than 5.8.0, see the 5.8.0
announcement and follow those instructions.


After your next reboot, you can optionally update your rescue system:

> cd /usr/src
> make initrd

Don't forget to upgrade your existing packages if you haven't recently:

> pkg update
> pkg upgrade
