Github Apps Preview Period

I was looking but couldn’t find any information on a release timeline for Github Apps. It’s currently in preview and not recommended for use in Production. Is there an expected timeline for when it will be production ready? I’m specifically referring to this https://developer.github.com/v3/apps/#get-an-app.

I was actually surprised that this is still in preview. I also couldn’t find information for when Github apps actually started, but I imagine quite a few years ago at this point. It’s surprising that the API is still not ready yet.

In case there is more information I haven’t found yet, my use case I’m looking to solve is to have users install a Github app that we then authenticate with in order to perform API functions, such as getting the contents of a repo.

Actually, my company just received an email today (how timely!) about a deprecation notice, so it looks like there is at least warning of changes.
