IIRC,

the answer is 'no' right now.
I read somewhere that it has Dependencies that are based on OS 19

I want cinnamon 3.8, but I'm afraid of moving to mint 19, ubuntu 18.04 has too many problems - the worst one for me is requiring a restart between iGPU and dGPU switching (using prime-select). They say it's because of several bugs in other packages present in the release....

Don't think you are going to get 3.8 w/o installing 18.04 or similar OS

Best to not be in a hurry and get a beta OS, I much prefer to stick with what is working now, and watch to see if the new kid on the block is working good.
