Bacula-Web 8.2.0

I’m really pleased to announce that Bacula-Web 8.2.0 has been released.

This is a minor feature and bug fix release.

Important note: Please note that next Bacula-Web release will remove support for PHP 5.6.
As stated on web site, PHP version 5.6 and prior has run out of support.
So for the sake of security, I encourage everyone to upgrade PHP at least to version 7.1.
