4.18 is already in -current. Someone would have to tell me what config options were required to support the Rpi3 and I'd think about whether to add it. The RPi isn't and won't be officially supported, so I'm not sure whether it's worth adding the support. I'm certainly not in a position (nor want to) to test it on an RPi. If it helps the SARPi project I might consider adding the necessary support though.

You might want to ask for details about the "Full support for Rasperry 3B and 3 B+" at the Raspberry Forum first:

Hijacking this thread a bit.

In the changelog we find this:
"Reverted to the 4.17 branch. Unfortunately 4.18 was unstable on the OrangePi. In particular, the date was jumping 100 years and there were numerous Kernel panics."

Which OrangePi was this? There's a known datejumping problem on the A64 SoC used on the OPiWin, but most other Allwinner SoCs should be ok.

Code:
root@zippy:~# cat /proc/device-tree/model;echo
Xunlong Orange Pi Plus 2E
It was also unstable on the AllWinner A20 Banana Pi. It didn't appear date related (the machine just hung, if I recall) but I didn't make any notes about it.
Once 4.19 is released I will try again.
