That reverts to the same setting for 1.8.0; as there's a new API exported by Wiretap in 1.8.1, the version number *should* change between 1.8.0 and 1.8.1:

The old setting was 2:1:0, and an interface was added but none were removed or changed, so current should go from 2 to 3, revision should go to 0, and age should go from 0 to 1, at least as I read that.
