During last year's discussions there were a number of people

- stick to 8 month or move to 12 month?

This should be a technical decision. If the people doing it can do it
comfortably on an 8 month cycle, do it. If more time is needed, take
it, as needed.

If I had to choose, I'd say "neither".

Take this chance to adjust to a continuous delivery release
stream, instead of traditional "major releases".

Release what is ready, as soon as it is ready. (Meaning: passes
acceptance criteria.)

I have a preference to install something well integrated that doesn't
change much in about two years and that it keeps working. I do not
want surprises because something is updated in the period to a new
shiny version, then to find that it breaks something else that was
working till that moment.

I do recognize that others want to be closer to the edge.
