XenForo 2.2.8 Released​

XenForo 2.2.8 is now available for all licensed customers to download. We strongly recommend that all customers running previous versions of XenForo 2.2 upgrade to this release to benefit from increased stability.

XenForo 2.2.8 brings initial PHP 8.1 support to XenForo. We do not currently recommend upgrading to PHP 8.1 in production but would encourage, where possible, running XF 2.2.8 and PHP 8.1 together on your staging sites/servers if possible.
