@Zang and @list, as this is a performance improvement feature and we do 
not backport features into releases (as a rule) that are already out in 
the field, hence we will not be backporting this to 3.8.

Further, 3.8 will EOL (end of life) from a maintenance standpoint when 
3.12 is released (scheduled around Aug 30th).

We would be merging this into 3.11.1 to provide early access for tests 
and such (Release date of June 20th), and this feature would be made 
generally available with 3.12.

We regret any inconvenience.
