we're ready for 2.4.2 now, but the maintainer who knows how to do the release isn't available atm, so it may take a few more days
if you want to know what's planned for the next release, just search the issues and filter by milestone

if there's an issue that you need "soon":
-if there's a PR already, test it and provide feedback
-if there's no PR, investigate and implement it yourself, or find others who need it as well and can work with you. Then make a PR for discussion (example of that: #4953, where the person who opened the issue also implemented the solution and made a PR with it for discussion. That PR will be merged now for 2.4.2, although it wasn't planned for it)
-You can always ask questions about the technical solution in the relevant issue
to be explicit:
x.y.z
x releases are huge breaking changes, where it is extremely likely that a user will need to update app code to get it to compile again
y releases are smaller changes, rarely breaking, backwards compatibility is usually maintained (rare exceptions, like ssl), plus important enhancements
z releases are mostly critical stabilty fixes plus aggregate enhancements
the should be considered a guideline, and not a strict rule

correct. At this time we consider 2.4.3 to be stable enough in the most critical parts (wifi, sockets, lwip, hw serial), so we're moving on to 2.5.0. If a critical issue comes up, we'll consider a 2.4.3, but right now we'd like to move on with what's planned in the issue tracker
