The Linux From Scratch community is pleased to announce the release of LFS 
Version 8.2, LFS Version 8.2 (systemd), BLFS Version 8.2, and BLFS Version 
8.2 (systemd).

This release is a major update to both LFS and BLFS.

The LFS release includes updates to glibc-2.27, binutils-2.30, and 
gcc-7.3.0. In addition five new packages have been moved to the base LFS 
book from BLFS: libffi, openssl, Python3, ninja, and meson.  Changes to 
text have been made throughout the book. The Linux kernel has also been 
updated to version 4.15.3.

The BLFS version includes approximately 900 packages beyond the base Linux 
 From Scratch Version 8.2 book. This release has 813 updates from the 
previous version in addition to numerous text and formatting changes.

Thanks for this release goes to many contributors.  Notably:

DJ Lucas
