The new Jamf Pro 10.4 beta continues to add features and functionality to support Apple’s spring release and enhance existing workflows. Additional features include the ability to suppress the Quick Start proximity setup after erasing a device, the ability to restrict the Remote app to specific Apple TV devices, and the ability to integrate with Entrust Certificate Authority to enroll devices and issue certificates.
Enhancements to existing workflows provide improvements to the User-Approved MDM enrollment experience, including the ability to notify users in Self Service to approve their MDM profile, enhancements to the Microsoft Intune integration setup, and additional search criteria for computer Smart Groups. Additionally, Self Service for macOS is now available in Chinese.

@bountyman I asked about this as well to our JAMFbuddy and he didn't have any updates for us. As a result, I've been going down the DEP deployment rabbit hole and nearly have everything figured out.
However, in my testing with the latest version of JAMF there is a PreStage Enrollment checkbox under Setup Assistant - "Set Up as New or Restore" - and I'm wondering if that is related to that re-provisioning mechanism that hasn't yet made its way into Jamf Imaging.
@bountyman my understanding is casper imaging will work once your machines are 10.13 to keep them the same version of 10.13. It won't help you get machines that are 10.12 up to 10.13.
I wish jamf would instead support some sort of startosinstall workflow (how Apple wants the OS to be installed so that your machines get firmware updates).
@aporlebeke In our shop, the techs do mostly re-imaging. Takes them 15mn using a thunderbolt SSD drive. So far, I only use DEP with the iOS devices. I hope JAMF supports 10.13.x imaging very soon...
@CasperSally I was not aware that Jamf Imaging works with 10.13.x. That's the main reason we are still on 10.12.6.
