New desktop machines (e.g., those in individuals' offices) at JLab are 
now being built with RedHat Enterprise Linux 8 (RHEL8) for people at the 
Lab that want a Linux box. The interactive node jlabl5.jlab.org has been 
running RHEL8 since last January. In keeping with these changes, Build 
Scripts has been updated to support builds of GlueX software on RHEL8.

There is no action required if you are running at JLab. This message is 
only to let you know that this new platform is out there and supported.

JLab is running

   Red Hat Enterprise Linux release 8.4 (Ootpa)

which comes with GCC 8.4.1. Actually, there was not much to do get Build 
Scripts to handle RHEL8 since a lot of the recent work on supporting GCC 
8 smoothed the path even before a RHEL8 build was tried.

The nightly build now includes a build on RHEL8. The last production 
version set, 4.44.0 
<https://halldweb.jlab.org/halld_versions/version_4.44.0.xml>, included 
RHEL8 as one of the platforms built at the Lab and RHEL8 will be built 
for future releases.
