I've now branched of 4.7/1.7 - these branches are now feature & string frozen. 
The translators are notified about this. I'll prepare a first beta release now 
and hope to then push a final version out in about a month. If we find any 
serious issues, we can always release a second beta or move the scheduled 
final release.
