A few bugs slipped into RetroPie 3.8 – most notably the launch commandline for DOSBox/RPIx86 was wrong, causing it to not work when launching DOS games directly from Emulation Station. There was also a problem building the gamecon gpio driver. These issues have been fixed, along with some other changes.
NOTE: There are currently problems with the XBox/XBox 360 controller driver xboxdrv caused by a Raspbian kernel update. This can be worked around by rolling back the Kernel. More details can be found on the forum.
