Again? How many times will this happen?
It's been debated for quite some time now but today they finally had the data and information they needed that, by and large, Voyager has left the solar system and has been for a year. But under larger definitions of what are solar system is comprised of Voyager has... a ways to go. It needs over 40,000 more years of travel to get past our most distant comets. But Voyager is beyond the the heliopause.
