WildFly is just renamed community version of JBoss AS.
And as such continues its versioning, if there was no rename there would be JBoss AS8 but after rename that is WildFly 8.
After 7.2.0 tag, codebase moved to 8 version and still continues as such, next release will be 8.0.0.CR1 which should be done shortly.
you can see the version bump in this commit Next is 8.0.0.Alpha1! · 111eca4 · wildfly/wildfly · GitHub
That was very a helpful and very, very fast answer. Thank you.
One follow-on question - what is the estimated time frame for 8.0.0 final- 1Q14? 3Q14? We can only work with final versions and I want to plan accordingly.
Thank you again.
Thank you - all of this is really helpful. One more question - will there be (or is there now) a list of changes from JBoss 7.1.1 to WIldfly 8.0.0? If so, where should I look to find it?
Main feature is EE7 support & removal of jbossweb web server for undertow.
you can also check release notes for each release Downloads · WildFly and as such you can combine "feature list" that is current.
there will be some combined release notes when we have .final ready
