Most likely not, but as always the best answer we can give is something along the lines of "it will be released the day after, the day before its released". The devs don't set release dates in stone, but rather make sure everything is finished as its supposed to do.
Looking at the fact there isn't even an first alpha release available I personally don't expect to see 3.1.x before the end of the year, but thats just my personal guess. You can follow the progress before 3.1.0-A1 here.

I had been wondering about this myself. Updates seemed to be rolling out every couple of months and then all of a sudden stopped with the release of 3.0.8.

Is there some reason why official development/updates have tapered off?

phpBB 3.0.9 is currently in the Release Candidate phase (RC2 at the moment), so that should be released within the next couple of weeks]. That the minor releases slow down simply mean that the code base is getting more and more stable, you don't have to push a minor release every "x" months just to make a release every "x" months. A release need to make sense, and obviously the devs feel that the current development state of the 3.0.x branch is enough to release 3.0.9.
Having less 3.0.x releases is good for the community as it saves them updating every "x" time and allows the developers to focus on feature releases (like 3.1.x) rather than bugfix releases.

I wouldn't be surprised (and actually hope so) that the update rate for the 3.0.x lines even slows down further, so that the devs can focus their attention on the next major versions and we hopefully see 3.1.0 come sooner than later.
