Welcome Ander,
 Currently I maintain a parallel branch with some patches for TLS 1.3,
at tmp-tls1.3-support. This is currently a "raw" branch with
unreviewed commits, and completed items from that one move with slower
pace to master (at the moment only features which are not tls1.3
only). I try to add new features in parallel with their test suite,
which slows things down a bit though tlsfuzzer getting tls 1.3 will
help on that. The branch is still ongoing for basic 1.3 support, and
only key exchange is supported. I plan to resume on this branch after
holidays (I'm back on 6th of september) so let's sync prior you start
