While 4.7 has many changes, most of the changes are not visible to
the user. In many ways 4.7.0 will be a "developer release". I'd
prefer to reserve 5.0.0 for a "user release" that comes with more
visual changes (eg. a new base theme and/or a new administration
structure and/or CCK and/or workflows).
Plus, we've been calling this 4.7.0 for 8 months or so. I'm worried
that calling this 5.0.0 is going to confuse the heck out of people.
It is going to render documentation/podcasts/videocasts outdated for
My 2 cents,
