Joomla 3.8 was released on September 19, 2017, and offers a number of important upgrades. The release has some minor security patches, but is not an immediate must-do upgrade. It is however, a big step in preparing for PHP 7.2 and Joomla 4.0. Bruce Moore will discuss some of the research and testing issues for upgrading to this release. The web article Test Your Template and Framework Before Upgrading to Joomla 3.8 covers some of the material for this presentation.
