you recently improved the quality of the AAC encoder and recomended to
use the native FFMPEG AAC encoder over the external encoders like
libfdk_aac or libfaac.
Regarding the quality of the encoder using Variable Bitrate the wiki
still states: "This VBR is experimental and likely to get even worse
results than the CBR." (https://trac.ffmpeg.org/wiki/Encode/AAC)
What does this mean? Has the quality of the VBR encoder not improved
with the recent changes?

As you keep tagging point release of the 2.8 branch and the encoder
itself has been around already I thought the improvements might make it
into the recent versions.

Yes, the non-experimental native aac encoder has been integrated with
releases as of ffmpeg 3.0. As far as I can tell, 3.1.2 and current git
master HEAD are even identical with regards to the native aac encoder.
