In a recent announcement on Moodle forums, Marina Glancy has posted the annoucement about the delay of one week in the release of the upcoming Moodle version i.e. Moodle 3.0
However, this delay will not affect the release of other Minor versions like 2.9.3; 2.8.9 & 2.7.11.
In the recent announcement, she posted the delay in the release of Moodle 3.0 as:
We’ve decided to delay the release of 3.0 for one week until 16th November in order to do a little more polishing and so we can have a bit more time on the associated documentation and release materials.
On the other note, the QA testing of Moodle 3.0 is almost finished with only 01 issue is left to finish off the QA testing. Congrats to all the community members for participating in the Moodle QA testing and helping it to achieve the high quality test standards.
