Oops, we even have the 4.8.0 roadmap still open despite having been
released many, many moons ago, never mind any new information... :-/ Will

The idea is to a beta out in November and final in December / early
January, depending on how things go with the beta. So fairly soon in any
Note however that the collections/plugins system has some open
questions/issues still and WILL change to some extent, and unless those
odds and ends get sorted out before the beta (which is of course what we
want, but time's getting a bit short), it'll be marked experimental in the
next release to allow room to make those changes in the nearish future. So
you'll want to proceed cautiously when planning / building something
fundamentally important on top of it right now.
Can you share some information on what are you planning to do with the
plugin functionality? Something akin to the SELinux plugin I presume?
