All assets of MIUI Global Forum has been migrated to Mi Community OC (Other Countries), which you can access from this link: Open link. You are now at Mi Community India, which is managing by Xiaomi India and is exclusively for Indian Mi Fans. It is no way related to MIUI Global Forum or Mi Community OC.

Answer: There is no particular ETA (estimated time assuming) available between MIUI Global Stable updates. Usually an update rolls out to the users once in 2-3 months after the ROM has been successfully tested internally. Always keep an eye on Mi Community to know further announcements regarding MIUI updates.
