Does anyone know the only different file(s) between Magento 126.96.36.199 and 188.8.131.52? I'd prefer to replace the updated files only when upgrading Magento rather than executing the patch file. That way I know exactly what changes are made and can be recorded. Observing the patch file is very confusing.
The patch and 184.108.40.206 are two different things.
During the last Magento patches, we had the habbit that the new version of Magento was the same as the old version with the patch applied, this is not the case here: 220.127.116.11 != 18.104.22.168 + SUPEE-8788
Here's a diff between 22.214.171.124 and Magento 126.96.36.199 + SUPEE-8788 : https://gist.github.com/digitalpianism/14a15cd52baede0e5d600e8c653f33e9
