Last week we worked quite hard to close some critical issues to be able to release Beta3, which is now work in progress. You can find the issues that we manage to close here: https://github.com/Activiti/Activiti/milestone/15?closed=1 . Most of the work that we are planning for Beta4 is about Conformance Tests, Acceptance Tests and automation to make sure that our release cycles can include more value after each iteration. We are currently looking into automate our examples layer to maintain a stable environment where we can promote new versions of the libraries as explained here: /2018/11/05/activiti-cloud-ci-cd-approach-for-java-libraries-and-beyond/
