8.2.0 Release Notes

I added the 'Stable Release' template the Release pages so we don't have to
answer the question -- what is the latest stable release. We should use 8.1
instead of 703; and I will try to get the 8.1.1 signed off so that is the
latest stable...

You have to help us keep up with the latest stable release of XS on this
template. It says 160, but isn't the latest stable 163?
