Centos 8.1, please make it so...

Hello, it has been quite some time now since CentOS 8 hit the shelves. I guess there were some delays, as I watched the forums and you were talking about days/a week... a month ago. This should be fine but by what miracle I get the Webmin version 1.942 on my Cloudmin Pro masters (it happens with 2 different setups, Cloudmin controllers running CentOS 7.7, in both cases trying to add new servers with CentOS 8.1...), and Webmin 1.941 on the hosts (CentOS 8.1) I am trying to add...?

As I understand 1.942 is the version supposed to work with CentOS/RHEL 8.x - is there any hiccup here, or something intentional/as designed? Because when I try to add those two as KVM hosts:

.. setup failed! See the error message above.

But of course I have fdisk :) and I don't know why the latest instalable version for Webmin is 1.941 on those two CentOS 8.1 servers... It is quite incovenient as Londo used to say. I cannot use two awesome machines, one an EPYC Rome 32c/64t with 256GB of DDR4, and the other one an EPYC Rome 24c/48t with 64GB...
