WCMS 2.8.1 release

All WCMS "FDSU", single page, conference and publication sites are being upgraded to WCMS 2.8.1. At the same time, servers are being upgraded to newer versions of the infrastructure, including PHP 7.3. This release does not affect UWaterloo Scholar sites.

This upgrade is scheduled to be deployed to pilot sites overnight on Friday, March 27th, and to production sites starting on Tuesday, April 7th.

These release notes are subject to change without notice.

Note that this was originally published as the 2.8.0 release; a last minute change necessitated changing the tag to 2.8.1.
