Fate of jdk.packager and jdk.packager.services?

I am sure the new jpackager tool will be a good substitute. But won't come before jdk12...

In fact we are in the current situation :
        We have a javaFX8 app distributed as a .exe with a bundled JRE.
        We are mirating to javaFX11.

My fear is that there will be a gap between javafx11 (october) and the new jpackager (not before jdk12) where no official and supported tool will be provided.

In this situation (I am sure we are not alone) what should we do ? Wait for the new jpackager ? or start using openjfx11 with no real certainty ? use an other tool ?
