[O] Release 8.2

Hi everyone,

I have just released version 8.2 of Org mode.  This is rather a minor release,
mainly designed to do some stabilization and cleanup before the merge
into Emacs.  Bastien will do this next week (?).

Lets keep in mind that this is the first time that version 8 reaches Emacs,
so we can assume wider distribution, and possibly more issues and complaints
as the incompatible changes in version 8 reach this wider audience.  So we
should be prepared for the possibility of a more intensive period of questions.
We will see - I hope everything goes well.

Thanks to everyone who contributed to this release.

Incompatible changes

`xdg-open' has been removed again from `org-file-apps-defaults-gnu'

  This did not work properly in some environments as xdg-open is desktop

Important bug fixes

Match string for sparse trees can now contain a slash in a property value

  You can now have searches like SOMEPROP="aaa/bbb".  Until now, this
  would break because the slash would be interpreted as the separator
  starting a TOTO match string.

New features

Changes in the default packages loaded for LaTeX

  - `rotating' is now a default package, to support sideways tables.
  - `amsmath' is a default package
  - `eucal' package removed, no longer needed since amsmath is present

  Furthermore, the manual now specifically notes if an additional
  package is needed for one of the documented attributes.

Microsoft Outlook support has been added to /org-mac-link.el/

  Thanks to Marc McLean for this patch.

Lazy autoloading of /org-id.el/ to follow links

  When following a link that has an `id:' prefix, /org-id.el/ will now
  automatically be loaded.

  Thanks to Oleh for this patch

New functions for paragraph motion

  The commands `C-down' and `C-up' now invoke special commands that use
  knowledge from the org-elements parser to move the cursor in a
  paragraph-like way.

  Thanks to Nicolas Goaziou for the implementation.

New agenda fortnight view

  The agenda has not, in addition to day, week, month, and year views,
  also a fortnight view covering 14 days.

  Thanks to Michael Gauland for the implementation.

New options

New option: [org-special-ctrl-o]

  This variable can be used to turn off the special behavior of `C-o' in
