The first "Release candidate" for Drupal 8 showed up on October 7th. There were several prerequisites requiring updates and new software on our server. A few glitches in Domain Name Resolution delayed things a bit but D8 @ LSNet went live today. We will be exploring new features and revisiting old ones. Several features were supported by modules in the past and are now in "core". You can play too. For a limited time, I will set up "free" test sites.
