+Boto 3
+`Boto3 <>`__, the next version of Boto, is now
+stable and recommended for general use. It can be used side-by-side with Boto
+in the same project, so it is easy to start using Boto3 in your existing
+projects as well as new projects. Going forward, API updates and all new
+feature work will be focused on Boto3.
+To assist users who still depend on Boto and cannot immediately switch over, we
+will be triaging and addressing critical issues and PRs in Boto in the short
+term. As more users make the switch to Boto3, we expect to reduce our
+maintenance involvement over time. If we decide on a cutoff date or any
+significant changes to our maintenance plan, we will make pre-announcements
+well ahead of schedule to allow ample time for our users to adapt/migrate.
