VisiData v2.8: Python 3.10 compatibility

This is a pretty small release of mostly bugfixes, which still has a few changes that merit a minor version bump.

The all-stars of this release are @ajkerrigan and @geekscrapy.

@ajkerrigan found, debugged, and fixed a Python 3.10 compatibility bug. Before v2.8, you could see many warnings related to COLOR-1 in the status message.

@geekscrapy contributed 7 PRs for v2.8. Thanks to his PRs, VisiData now gracefully skips blank lines in json files, and will not attempt to load plugins which failed to install.

Happy holidays!
