<a href="/project/drupal/releases/8.2.0-beta1">Drupal 8.2.0-beta1</a> was released on August 3, 2016, which means new developments and disruptive changes should now be targeted against the 8.3.x-dev branch. For more information see the <a href="/core/release-cycle-overview#minor">Drupal 8 minor version schedule</a> and the <a href="/core/d8-allowed-changes">Allowed changes during the Drupal 8 release cycle</a>.
The last script used to do this is in.
The may date need to be updated when the beta is released as well as the path alias. Postponed on the 8.2.x beta release itself, but trial runs may be made if needed.
