 Additional: Sorry, I was confused about what was meant, I thought you were
 talking about the compatibility dropdown. Let me rephrase. :)

 Forget the dropdown.

 We maintain a "version equivalents" listing for versions of WordPress for
 this use. Anybody with "3.8", "3.8.1", or "3.8.2" will also be listed as
 compatible with 3.8.3 in the plugin listings. Same happens for 3.7 and
 other versions back to the 2.9 days. If we ever make major API changes in
 a point release, then there is the ability for the code to break that
 compatibility equivalent if needed.

 Nevertheless, this is intentional. 3.8.2 and 3.8.3 were security and
 bugfix releases, and should not break compatibility for any plugin, and
 the directory knows that.
