LEAP Platform 0.8.2 Release

We are releasing Platform 0.8.2 today. This is release fixes a potential security issue where VPN clients are able to communicate with other connected VPN clients. It is just a minor release to fix bugs, security issues and further stabilize the 0.8.1 release. This release has only a few, but important, changes. By design it does not contain any new features. Please see below for requirements and details for upgrading.
