Hi All,

I'm happy to announce the first stable release in the 0.8.x

Changes in spice-0.8.0:
* client: exit nicely for --controller with no SPICE_XPI_SOCKET (rhbz#644292)
* client-x11: Use _exit rather then exit on X errors (rhbz#680763)
* client-x11: Fix keyb modifiers not syncing from guest to client (rhbz#679467)
* server: fix segfault on migration

Changes in spice-protocol-0.8.0:
* Add support for different clipboards (selections) to vd_agent copy paste
* Add support for using different authentication mechanisms (just SASL for now)
