There is a new release candidate, this includes many of the new 1.8
features now, detailed in emails on dev list:
I've tweaked the main binaries (repro and reTurn) to write PID files and
daemonize themselves, and the config files are now more UNIX friendly,
e.g. they support /etc/ssl/certs now
As it is a release candidate and not an official tarball, would you be
willing to act as a sponsor and upload it to experimental?
