When it comes about bleeding edge, check Archlinux.
Gentoo too has v4.8.1 in [stable] and v4.8.2 in [unstables] repos:

Not gonna happen. There was an attempt to do it, but haven't received any public attention and died.

I would think all KDE base distros are now offering KDE 4.8.2 release. I have KDE in my Ubuntu install and also in my FreeBSD install. My Ubuntu has 4.8.2 my FreeBSD doesnt.

I havent use yet but OpenSuSE KDE base might be offering KDE 4.8.2 in their installation too. They are usually one of the first distros adopting new things.

Good luck to you.

Opensuse to my knowledge still comes with kde 4.7.2, but if you add the kde48 repo, you can have kde 4.8.2.

Quote:
The April set of KDE updates to Workspaces, Apps and Platform are available now for openSUSE in our KDE:Release:48 repository. This offers you the latest stable software from upstream KDE for openSUSE releases. As point releases, these are an essential upgrade for your production openSUSE installations.
.
I have not tried upgraded yet, but i'm exited, after the amazing job that was kde 4.8.1

The Distrowatch search page enables you to check for versions of any of the programs they track. Looking for "kdelibs 4.8.2" reveals Arch, Frugalware, PLD, and Slackel (which sounds interesting).
