How much of the new hardware is supported by the current version of 'Stretch' and is a 3+ really that much of an upgrade?. I'm waiting for a Four ,vbg.
There's a new release of Stretch, so sudo apt update/upgrade should get everything you need.
The upgrade is 3B to 3B+ - so a point upgrade - but in short you get faster Ethernet, faster wireless, faster CPU, better thermal management, PoE ability (with HAT). Not bad, and it's still the same price. I think that's a pretty good deal.
Enjoy your wait for 4. It still some time away. Holding breath not recommended. Death will result.
