If people who are running the latest beta on their sites are not reporting 
show-stopping problems (and it does not seem that they are), then it should be 
a release candidate.

I agree with Khalid:  it ought to be called 5.0.  It might not be 
psychologically wise to change names at this point, but if release numbers are 
to make any sense, any changes the size of what were made between 4.6 and 4.7 
should really be major release number changes, e.g 4.6 -> 5.0, not point releases.
