The next release will be 9.0-RELEASE which is what everyone is preparing
for at the moment.  The release process for that is still in the early
stages, and it isn't yet clear exactly what new stuff will be in 9.0.

8.3-RELEASE would happen in the cycle following 9.0-RELEASE.  Release
cycles tend to be spaced 4+ months apart, at least.  Also, releases will
be held up to fix show-stopper bugs or other problems, so the schedule
may well slip
