SuiteCRM 8.2 beta 2

Although the second SuiteCRM 8.2 beta has mainly focused on getting LDAP and SAML authentication up and running, in preparation for the production release of SuiteCRM 8.2, beta 2 also includes some new and improved functionality to the History Timeline, Duplicate Views, Bulk Select and migration process updates, as well as numerous styling changes to ensure SuiteCRM 8 continues to have a consistent look and feel throughout. Beta 2 also contains some important bug fixes and documentation updates in relation to the migration process from SuiteCRM 7, originally released in the first beta.
