Its out now.  8.0.1.  Released 2 days ago.  Technical documention is available now, but the software is conditional pending approve upgrade survey.  Some of the features of 8.01.:

- Group QoS
- Higher TDMA upstream rates (Line cards only).  Up to 7Msps (approx 11 MBps of info rate)
- NMS activity logging
- Ability to lock remotes onto an HNO specified return channel

There are more. 

GQoS appears to be the homerun in this release.  It completely revamps the legacy QoS in previous versions.  That, and 8.X fixed a lot of the operation impacting bugs in 7.X

Good Stuff.

Any idea where can we get this "Technical documention" ?

I think upgrading to this version will take a long of consideration in mind for both the Hub and remote sites ?!

Upgrading to 8.X will require some significant homework.  The GQoS feature is extremely powerful, and warrants a roadmap just to implement. 

There is documentation out there, finding it on a host site is the challenge.
