ModeShape 2.8.0.Final is now available and is in the usual locations. See the blog post for the details on the release. Please note that this is the last planned release for the 2.x line, although we'll release a patch release (or two) as needed.
Thanks to everyone who worked on this release, including all the contributors and all of the users that asked questions, logged issues and tested fixes. We couldn't have done this without all of you!
