Well, the hope was to get arc-2018.09 in BR v2018.11 release as
we're going to cut the final release in coming days but...

maybe it's good that we'll have a longer stabilization cycle
for our tools in BR especially keeping in mind that we're
switching from GCC 7.x to 8.x and there might come up some
issues related more to GCC 8.x than to ARC port itself.

We'll do that, sure.
