I'll delay the release of v0.8.2. Because the bug:
https://bugs.launchpad.net/sheepdog-project/+bug/1317755 is really
serious. The recent posted patch (see the thread entitled [PATCH]
sheep: don't recycle VDI ID) can fix the problem. After the patch is
merged to master and backported to stable-0.8, I'll release
