Dan,

Release notes are always viewable for any release by clicking on the "What's new in this release" button on the home splash screen. Ric gave you the incremental changes from 8.2.1.79 (because he was in the beta for 8.2.1.79), but those are applicable to this version as well.

Correct however, it would be beneficial to see Release Notes posted somewhere prior to installing. This provides us with insight as to what changes are in the release prior to the upgrade and enables us to make a more intelligent decision as to upgrading now or wait on a follow-on release.
