I don't have a firm release date for Jaybird 4 yet. I don't expect it to
take the 5 years from 2.2.0 to 3.0.0, but there are some other factors
right now that limit the time I am able to spend on Jaybird.

I'm not sure if and where I gave that impression, but that is not the
case. I will be releasing 3.0.x updates at least until the release of
Jaybird 4, and probably a few updates afterwards (depending on severity
and necessity).

For example I will release Jaybird 3.0.2 somewhere this month (probably
next week), which relaxes the connection character set requirement back
to that of 2.2.x.

And there is a 2.2.14 forthcoming, currently planned for September, but
given its current content (a single bug of very low impact), I might
defer it until later.
