Thank you, 8.2.0 contributors!
Everyone who has contributed digits, mathematical symbols, or processes to the production of 8.2.0 (which is not a real number, just a combination of numbers and decimals) is to be thanked tremendously. When we added this to the world of nonnumbers, we forgot to thank you personally, so here you are : THANK YOU PERSONALLY .
