Is Drupal8 really ready for production and complex sites?


this is more an outpouring of frustration than a real question, but I’d like to know what think about that people that use Drupal every day.

Is Drupal8 really ready to develop a complex site for production environments?

I can see that it still changes too quickly, that there are often patches and new versions and it is too difficult to upgrade to a new version.

For example, I’ve implemented a website with many custom modules with Drupal 8.3.7 and now are two days that I’m trying to upgrade this site (using Composer) to the version 8.4.4. I don’t think that this is normal and this is very frustrating.

What do you think about that? What are your experiences with Drupal8?

Thank you
