@Gadrah has just released a very informative article describing the changes coming to Burst, and also a rough estimate on a time frame that we could expect. I highly recommend reading this to get up to speed on what the community should expect, and also the expectations of the community.
Quote from the article -
This roadmap will be achieved before the end of the 2018. However, the most important bottleneck remains the community – we urge everybody to update to the latest wallet version, currently 1.3.6cg but most importantly 2.0.0 once it is released. If you are still using the AIO client, please use Qbundle instead. We need everybody onboard to make the Burst Dymaxion happen as fast as possible – we are counting on you.
