I was about to ask on expected RC release dates for the next version of Blender.
I found the development thread on 2.8 and skimmed through it, but did not see an actual timeline.
As it appears things are going to change between 2.7x and 2.8, can anyone spell out an estimated timetable for the new version candidates to debut? I really don’t want to get into any new projects if UI is going to change or (I think I read this) Blender Render being phased out (??).
