The HTCondor team is pleased to announce the release of HTCondor 8.8.0.
After a year and a half of development, this is the first release of the
new stable series.

Highlights of this release are:
- Automatically add AWS resources to your pool using HTCondor Annex
- The Python bindings now include submit functionality
- Added the ability to run a job immediately by replacing a running job
- A new mini(ht)condor package makes single node installations easy
- HTCondor now tracks and reports GPU utilization
- Several performance enhancements in the collector
- The grid universe can create and manage VM instances in Microsoft Azure
- The MUNGE security method is now supported on all Linux platforms

NOTE: The main (ht)condor package on Linux no longer provides a single node
installation of HTCondor. The new mini(ht)condor package provides a more
secure configuration of a single node HTCondor system.

NOTE: The stable series is installed in new repositories. Consult the
installation instructions at
