+These release notes discuss important aspects, such as configuration, behavior, or dependencies,
that changed between Flink 1.7 and Flink 1.8. Please read these notes carefully if you are
planning to upgrade your Flink version to 1.8.

+### State
+#### Continuous incremental cleanup of old Keyed State with TTL
+We introduced TTL (time-to-live) for Keyed state in Flink 1.6
+([FLINK-9510](https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FLINK-9510)).  This feature
+allowed to clean up and make inaccessible keyed state entries when accessing
+them. In addition state would now also being cleaned up when writing a
+Flink 1.8 introduces continous cleanup of old entries for both the RocksDB
+state backend
+([FLINK-10471](https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FLINK-10471)) and the heap
+state backend
+([FLINK-10473](https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FLINK-10473)). This means
+that old entries (according to the ttl setting) are continously being cleanup
+#### New Support for Schema Migration when restoring Savepoints
+With Flink 1.7.0 we added support for changing the schema of state when using
+the `AvroSerializer`
+([FLINK-10605](https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FLINK-10605)). With Flink
+1.8.0 we made great progress migrating all built-in `TypeSerializers` to a new
+serializer snapshot abstraction that theoretically allows schema migration. Of
+the serializers that come with Flink, we now support schema migration for the
+([FLINK-11485](https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FLINK-11485)), and Java
+([FLINK-11334](https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FLINK-11334)), As well as
+for Kryo in limited cases
+#### Savepoint compatibility
+Savepoints from Flink 1.2 that contain a Scala `TraversableSerializer` are not
+compatible with Flink 1.8 anymore because of an update in this serializer
 Review comment:
   Is there a valid "upgrade path"? If yes, we should say sth like "users with savepoints
from Flink 1.2 should first upgrade to 1.3+ and then go to 1.8".
