[ANNOUNCE] GHC 8.2.1 release candidate 2

I've manage to reproduce the CK bug without any external dependencies and
opened a ticket with an attached module that fails to compile with
8.2.1-rc2 (w/o explicit KindSignature) but compiles fine with 8.0.2.
The lens problem was a false alarm and a lack of patience from me... they
indeed finish and pass if you give them enough time. Sorry for the noise.
Will hopefully follow up soon with the Cabal issues I'm experiencing
