Play 2.8.0-RC1 released!

Dear Play Community,

The Play Team is pleased to announce the release of Play Framework 2.8.0-RC1. This is the first Release Candidate of Play 2.8.x series. Like the milestone releases, one of our major goals is to get feedback, so please let us know if something isn’t working or you see something that should be improved. But unlike the milestones, we are now freezing the APIs and other changes, and we intended to promote the release candidate to 2.8.0 final if no critical issues are reported. Please, help by trying the release with your applications or modules.
