So Views and Twig are both in Drupal 8 alongside with a configuration import and an entity translation UI. Big, big progress in general. On my end, EFQ v2 has been committed. Now I am doing a number of things in parallel: one, I am rewriting the batch API and have buy in from Crell, bojanz and yched (and I think berdir is OK with it too) so I expect that to get in once it's more completed. We have decided on not supporting "call me again" jobs, just clean, explicit job creation. A new queue operation seems necessarily -- which is move to the end of the queue.
