I just noticed, that a tag for Libgcrypt 1.8.3 seems to be missing: https://dev.gnupg.org/source/libgcrypt/tags/LIBGCRYPT-1.8-BRANCH/

Furthermore the NEWS entries for v1.8.3 *and* v1.8.2 seem to be missing in master: https://dev.gnupg.org/source/libgcrypt/browse/master/NEWS
But in branch-1.8 the NEWS file does contain an entry for v1.8.2, only one for v1.8.3 is lacking: https://dev.gnupg.org/source/libgcrypt/browse/LIBGCRYPT-1.8-BRANCH/NEWS

Oh, and the README still refers to v1.7 in master *and* branch-1.8: https://dev.gnupg.org/source/libgcrypt/browse/master/README

HTH

P.S.: As usual, my quest for proper references in the WWW WRT Libgcrypt releases originates from housekeeping of https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Libgcrypt

P.P.S.: Maintenance of the branch-1.7 has stopped 2018-06-01, right (*edit:* or was that planned to happen 2018-06-31)?

1.8.3 has not yet been released and thus there is no NEWS entries and there can't be a 1.8.3 tag. You are right that the README still says 1.7. I'll fix that for 1.8.3. Why do you think maintenance of 1.7 stopped; the AUTHORS file and the new EOL statements on the download page say that we are going to maintain it until 2019-06-30.

Thanks.
So what I remembered was 1 year and 1 month off the real EOL date.
