We are pausing minor releases while we work on architectural changes for Rasa Open Source 3.0, therefore, 2.8 will be the last minor release in the 2.x series.
You can still contribute new features and improvements, which we plan to release together with 3.0. If you’re new to contributing, you can learn how by reading through our contributor guidelines. If your PR is merged, we will also enter you into our contributor program.
We plan to ship alpha releases and release candidates over the next few months in order to get early feedback. Stay tuned for more details on that!
