Updated information on why the port is happening and what features it has, from #2622330: Drupal 8?. Updated the status as not all the features from the D7 have been moved into D8 core.

For anyone wondering, I just tried version 8.x-2.x-dev on Drupal 8.1.2 and it does not yet appear to let me reorder titles on content type "manage display" pages. If I edit the content type, there's an option under the change title settings tab to "Display Configurable Title." This adds the title to the manage display tab, but reordering the field and saving does not appear to make changes.

I just tested the module, and it still doesn't work...

Display Suite for Drupal 8 seems to work, though. Just add a one column lay-out to the Display mode of your content type, and an extra Title field should appear.

Another option is to use the Twig template system: https://www.drupal.org/node/2607350#comment-10793844

I'm confused about the status of the D8 port that is currently at: https://www.drupal.org/project/title is about a year old and other than exposing the title field to the "Display Settings" page, it doesn't seem to work.

So far I am seeing no errors reported so that is great. Is this module still under development for D8? I have some experience with exposing and extending Drupal 8 fields so I know it isn't a minor undertaking. Exposing the title field to "Display Settings" is a pretty major feature in my opinion so I hope this is still an ongoing endeavour.

Thanks,
Andrew

@awasson It doesn't appear there has been active development, though given that a lot of D8 development has happened on GitHub, it's possible someone is working on it and hasn't let us know.

It's also worth including that there's a core issue on this topic too -- though it doesn't look likely to be going anywhere soon:
