The Release Candidate for XCP-ng 8.1 is available for testing. If this version meets our quality standard, XCP-ng 8.1 should be ready for production before the end of the month.
⚠: Remember, even if the release candidate is relatively reliable, you should not use it in a production environment.
However, if you have a test lab or hosts that you can risk upgrading, knowing that it's already working well for many people since beta release, then testing and giving feedback is a very useful way to contribute back to the project!
