Which version of Laravel for a fresh new project?

Posted 8 months ago by octal

Hello, this week I'm going to start a new project (for the company I work for), and I'll be, of course, using Laravel. I wanted to know which version do you suggest me to use?

I'm inclined to use v5.7 as it's mature, but I see that its support will stop by august of this year. And in the mean time, I really don't like to use extremely fresh new versions for production, i.e. v5.8.

My website will be in production by the start of June. Do you consider that v5.8 will be as mature as v5.7 at this time? even if it needs some patches regularly this is not a problem for me.
