Generally speaking, the easiest way to find out when a release is really likely to get out the door is probably to check the GNATS system for major bugs and follow the goings-on over on the stable, hackers, and other development-oriented mailing lists. There hasn't been an RC for 7 yet, so it still has a ways to go. 6.4-R will probably be out the door in a matter of weeks, as RC2 just got tagged a couple of days ago. Hint: look for kensmith commits to newvers.sh for a much quicker heads-up on activity than you'll get from the schedule on the website. ;)
