TL;DR: Is there an anticipated timeline for stable release?

I’m 90% complete on a CakePHP 3.8 project and am trying to decide if I should migrate then release, or release then migrate. I understand that the alpha->beta->release process is highly fluid, but I was wondering if the team has a general goal in mind that I could consider in my own migration/release decision?

So glad to see PHP extensions in the view and the layouts now.

@calteran Stick with 3.8. When the time comes you should be able to upgrade to 4.0 relatively easily by following the migration guide.
