Hi All!

Finally linstor-server 1.8.0 is here.

Changes from rc1 are a few reported bug fixes and also a snapshot-shipping
list is now available in the API.
I'm copy-pasting the release highlights from the rc1:

* SOS-report: using "linstor sos-report create" and afterwards the
"download" subcommand, Linstor can now generate a tar.gz containing
machine- and Linstor-specific information, log files, error reports
and such.
* Snapshot-shipping[1]: Linstor can now ship newly created snapshots
from one Linstor resource to another using 'zfs send' / 'zfs receive'
for ZFS or 'thin_send' / 'thin_recv' for LVM. Both tools support
incremental shipment. Additionally Linstor can be configured with
auto-snapshot-shipping as well as auto-snapshots (without shipping)

NOTE: LVM-based snapshot-shipping requires the 'thin_send_recv' tool
to be installed which is available from the PPA as well as from
