I'll do a 4.5.2 release on Sunday. Please try to fix any remaining open pet 
bugs you have until then.

I propose this schedule:

01.11.2013 - feature & string freeze, also first beta release
15.11.2013 - second beta release
29.11.2013 - final release of 4.6.0

Personally, I think there are still some open blockers for 4.6.0, such as the 
new and we should definitely go 
through our crash list and see whether we can fix some more of those.

But thanks to the CMake refactoring, this release should be much more stable! 
Well done!


PS: Please also start listing fancy new features which we can use for the 
announcements then.
