UPDATE: 1.9.0-RC has been released, and this topic has been locked.

This is a beta release of version 1.9.0-beta4 intended for testing purposes.

This release is aimed at new security features:
- high security mode option for credentials
- striping of sensitive data from backups
- new API endpoints

More features coming as 1.9.0 development progresses.

Please check out the full changelog below to learn more.

We test the beta releases as best as possible, but bugs may be present.
For general usage, we recommend customers run current STABLE release.
