Inconsistent charm++ archives
The v6.8.0 archive is a
.tar.bz2 archive while older versions are
.tar.gz. This makes in more difficult when packaging Charm++ in package managers like spack, and also for CI systems. It would be nice to have a tar.gz of 6.8.0 available, but I mainly wanted to bring this inconsistency to your attention to make sure it's intentional :)

It was intentional, to provide a smaller download. I hadn't thought about the impact on systems that would be looking for a specific filename, only on humans following a link from our website/email.
We'll post a tar.gz of that, and of future releases, to allow for easy consistent scripting.
