The TYPO3 core team is officially starting the next development cycle. Sprint releases every 8-10 weeks along the way until TYPO3 8 LTS (Long Term Support) in April 2017 will ensure that new projects can possibly be set up with v8 already. A smooth upgrade path between the sprint releases will be provided.
