Release 2.8.1 is a security release which also contains a few minor bug fixes. This release adds TLS encryption to LDAP authentication and enables that by default. It is highly recommended for AtoM installations that use LDAP authentication to upgrade to 2.8.1. We have also updated the translation files, based on new contributions from our wonderful volunteer translation community
