[ODE] 0.8.2 candidate

Some warnings reappeared because I commented explicit casting to float 
during my changes in code that passed parameters to OPCODE. As a quick 
resolution I would prefer disabling warnings. However casting to float is a 
pretty bad solution. This would make it impossible to track down all the 
incorrect casts on in callers if some floating point type customization 
would be implemented in OPCODE. The correct approach is to define some type 
alias (e.g. opc_float or opReal) as float and cast to it. Then if there 
would be type changes in OPCODE in future it would be possible to just 
re-define that type alias to new native OPCODE type.
