Boxes 3.8.1 is now available. Changes since 3.8.0:

- Don't crash on missing udev properties.
- Enable usb-redirection by default.
- Allow rebooting the box on changes to system properties, even if box is in
saved state.
- Automatically delete under-install/live VM on source media deletion.
- Use correctly sized logos.
- Avoid weird glitches in UI by actually cancelling the connecting process when
user goes back to collection view.
- Add '--enable-ovirt' configure option.
- Delete box configuration even when box is deleted by another UI.
- Continue/Create buttons in wizard should have the focus when they are
sensitive. In most cases, this will enable users to create VMs very quickly.
- More info on hardware requirements in user help pages.

- British English
- Catalan (Valencian)
- Finnish
- Hebrew
