LEAP Platform 0.8.1 Release

Today we release the Platform 0.8.1, a minor release to fix some issues that came up from the previous major (0.8.0) release. This release has only a few, but important, changes. By design it does not contain any new features. Please see below for requirements and details for upgrading.
