We're pleased to announce 0.8.1, named by @vasild (who last release was
a new committer!)
*Highlights for Users*
- We now support gifting msat to the peer when opening a channel, via
push_msat, providing a brand new way to lose money!
- Invoice routehints can be overridden using exposeprivatechannels: try
setting to  to eliminate all of them to fit your invoice in twitter
- Preliminary support for plugins hooks which can replace the default
bitcoin-cli with other blockchain querying methods (API may change in
future releases though!).
Highlights for the Network
- Plugins can set additional feature bits, for more experimentation.
- Wallet withdraw transactions now set nLocktime, making them blend in
more with other wallets.
- Prevent a case where grossly unbalanced channels could become unusable.
