Hi sheepdog users and developers,

I released v0.8.3 of stable branch. You can download a source archive
from these URLs:
tar.gz: https://github.com/sheepdog/sheepdog/archive/v0.8.3.tar.gz
zip: https://github.com/sheepdog/sheepdog/archive/v0.8.3.zip

I have to emphasis on the point that updating from v0.8.x (x < 3) to
v0.8.3 requires "-u" option, because it contains updating store
format. Sorry for inconvenience but the format update is a necessary
change for clusters which store many objects.
