0.8.2 rc2 never made it out the door; two crash-on-shutdown bugs and a bitcoin.ico file that made the windows gitian build non-reproducible made us jump to rc3 instead.

So:

Bitcoin-Qt version 0.8.2 release candidate 3 is now available from:
  http://sourceforge.net/projects/bitcoin/files/Bitcoin/bitcoin-0.8.2/test/

This is a maintenance release that fixes many bugs and includes
a few small new features.

Please report bugs using the issue tracker at github:
  https://github.com/bitcoin/bitcoin/issues


How to Upgrade
--------------

If you are running an older version, shut it down. Wait
until it has completely shut down (which might take a few minutes for older
versions), then run the installer (on Windows) or just copy over
/Applications/Bitcoin-Qt (on Mac) or bitcoind/bitcoin-qt (on Linux).

If you are upgrading from version 0.7.2 or earlier, the first time you
run 0.8.2 your blockchain files will be re-indexed, which will take
anywhere from 30 minutes to several hours, depending on the speed of
your machine.

0.8.2 Release notes
===================

Fee Policy changes
------------------

The default fee for low-priority transactions is lowered from 0.0005 BTC
(for each 1,000 bytes in the transaction; an average transaction is
about 500 bytes) to 0.0001 BTC.

Payments (transaction outputs) of 0.543 times the minimum relay fee
(0.00005430 BTC) are now considered 'non-standard', because storing them
costs the network more than they are worth and spending them will usually
cost their owner more in transaction fees than they are worth.

Non-standard transactions are not relayed across the network, are not included
in blocks by most miners, and will not show up in your wallet until they are
included in a block.

The default fee policy can be overridden using the -mintxfee and -minrelaytxfee
command-line options, but note that we intend to replace the hard-coded fees
with code that automatically calculates and suggests appropriate fees in the
0.9 release and note that if you set a fee policy significantly different from
the rest of the network your transactions may never confirm.

Bitcoin-Qt changes
------------------

* New icon and splash screen
* Improve reporting of synchronization process
* Remove hardcoded fee recommendations
* Improve metadata of executable on MacOSX and Windows
* Move export button to individual tabs instead of toolbar
* Add "send coins" command to context menu in address book
* Add "copy txid" command to copy transaction IDs from transaction overview
* Save & restore window size and position when showing & hiding window
* New translations: Arabic (ar), Bosnian (bs), Catalan (ca), Welsh (cy),
  Esperanto (eo), Interlingua (la), Latvian (lv) and many improvements
  to current translations

MacOSX:
* OSX support for click-to-pay (bitcoin:) links
* Fix GUI disappearing problem on MacOSX (issue #1522)

Linux/Unix:
* Copy addresses to middle-mouse-button clipboard


Command-line options
--------------------

* -walletnotify will call a command on receiving transactions that affect the wallet.
* -alertnotify will call a command on receiving an alert from the network.
* -par now takes a negative number, to leave a certain amount of cores free.

JSON-RPC API changes
--------------------

* fixed a getblocktemplate bug that caused excessive CPU creating blocks.
* listunspent now lists account and address infromation.
* getinfo now also returns the time adjustment estimated from your peers.
* getpeerinfo now returns bytessent, bytesrecv and syncnode.
* gettxoutsetinfo returns statistics about the unspent transaction output database.
* gettxout returns information about a specific unspent transaction output.


Networking changes
------------------

* Significant changes to the networking code, reducing latency and memory consumption.
* Avoid initial block download stalling.
* Remove IRC seeding support.
* Performance tweaks.
* Added testnet DNS seeds.

Wallet compatibility/rescuing
-----------------------------

* Cases where wallets cannot be opened in another version/installation should be reduced.
* -salvagewallet now works for encrypted wallets.


Thanks to everybody who contributed to the 0.8.2 release!

Starts fine on Win 8 x64 and doesn't have the issue where it rescans a new wallet on startup. Chain is syncing normally. Shuts down and restarts OK. Nice work!

OS X 10.8.3 - upgrade from 0.8.2rc1

Launch attempt #1 - splash screen abruptly disappeared during "Verifying blocks..." and process became unresponsive.  Killed the process and tried again.

attempt #2 - Application loaded without any issue.

I will try to replicate the result from Attempt #1 and provide some debug output if possible.  Not ruling out it was a problem with the OS itself.

OS X 10.8.3 - upgrade from 0.8.2rc1

Launch attempt #1 - splash screen abruptly disappeared during "Verifying blocks..." and process became unresponsive.  Killed the process and tried again.

Couldn't reproduce this, started just fine first time on OSX 10.8.4 (dev seed) upgrading from 0.8.2rc1.

No release candidate warning splashed all over this one?
