UPDATE: 1.8.3 has been released, and this topic has been locked.

This is a beta release of version 1.8.3-beta5 intended for testing purposes.

1.8.3 continues updates to the 1.8 release branch, and as such, there are no major features present.
Quite a few improvements to existing features are however present.
(and as always, we continue to fix any issues/bugs that are found)

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.
