I am excited to announce the latest new release of the STAAD.Pro V8i SELECTseries 3 published on the Bentley SELECT server and is now available fordownload. The new release has undergone not only the stringent quality assurance programme that all STAAD.Pro releases gothrough, but also additional QA processes required for applications that are to be used on nuclear projects, notably the specific 10CFR21 reportingrequirements*. This has resulted in a large number of updates/fixes reported in the Revision History documentation.
New Design Code
The range of nuclear codes supported by the STAAD.Pro Nuclear license has been enhanced with the ASME NF 3000:2001 design code. Additionally the specific service designlevel can be specified to all ASME NF design codes now which are used to identify the loading condition and thus the stress level factors.
The range of standard profiles has been enhanced with a new database of the hollow section profiles manufactured by TATA Structura in India.
Minor updates and bugfixes.

* Contact your Bentley account manager/sales centre if you want to purchase licenses to the STAAD QA&R Programme to get the 10CFR21 QA report documents.
The issue is resolved!
Please disregard this.
I have got installed the latest release of STAAD.Pro (20.07.08.22) and it seems to be working fine so far, but in Section Wizard (FreeSketch and SectionBuilder) I can’t change the units from the default values in preferences.
Could you please verify if you face the same problem?
Good idea. I have updated the post and added a text file which outlines the issues that have been addressed.
Carlos, can you provide a link to the revision history? It would be helpful to see what has actually been fixed.
I know you can see it after installation, but I'd like to see it before installation.
