Easy Digital Downloads version 1.8.1 was released this morning in order to fix a few bugs that were either introduced in 1.8 or not fixed in 1.8, including a pretty significant tax calculation error. The complete changelog can be seen below.

One important note about 1.8.1: PayPal itemization for purchases has been disabled due to some price calculation bugs. Purchase summaries will still be shown on PayPal but the items being purchased will not each be listed as line items. This will be corrected in 1.9.
