Manjaro 0.8.2pre1 online

If all goes as planned, we will release Manjaro 0.8.2 on the 27th of October. To find any regressions in our current testbuild I'm releasing 0.8-r1007 as Manjaro 0.8.2pre1 so we can fix stuff before 0.8.1rc1 will hit our servers.

This build has most fixes in stuff we missed in 0.8.1. Manjaro 0.8.2pre2 will introduce stuff like EFI-Support, GPT-Partitiontable support, btrfs and nilfs2 support and other new stuff comming to 0.8.2 release.

This release is mainly for developer and testers, not recommended for end-users.

Test this image and report back any bugs or regressions you might find.
