Async-std v1.8.0 has been released!

Hey all, today we've released async-std v1.8.0, about a month after the 1.7.0 release. Yay for regular releases!

Important for this release is that if you're using the async_std::sync::channel you upgrade to async_std::channel::bounded . The channel submodule is the what we intend to stabilize in the next release, set for January. By having both APIs as unstable for at least one release cycle we're trying to make sure we don't break half the ecosystem overnight. You can read more our reasoning in more detail in the changelog.

Also this release includes types under async_std::process , a re-export of the async-process crate. This is one of the last pieces of the stdlib's IO facilities that were missing in async-std, and we're excited to be making progress on it.

Anyway, that's all for today -- happy Tuesday!
