Future program versions

The PYTHIA 8.2 series will be winding down during 2019. A few bug fix releases could still be expected before the code is frozen.

Instead a PYTHIA 8.3 series will be introduced during 2019. The main new feature is that the VINCIA and DIRE parton shower programs, which currently are distributed separately but can be plugged into PYTHIA, will now become parts of the PYTHIA core distribution.
