CircuitPython 0.8.2

Happy Friday all! Heres a bugfix release for those of you running CircuitPython without a USB connection. No need to update otherwise.

From the GitHub release page:

Fix a bug that is only critical when USB data is not connected.

To install, download a .bin file and follow the guide here.

Full explanation:
`reset_samd21()` ensures peripheral and pin state but was only done after the first main run. Without this reset, pin state is unknown and risks generating a ValueError exception due to pin in use. With USB data, the autoreset causes a reset and everything works. Without it, CircuitPython stays in the pre-repl error state.
