I don't think it is a matter of days, we have not even reached RC status 
yet on 7.1
On  a production server you will probably wish to go with 
7.0-RELEASE-p5. It would be trivial to upgrade to 7.1 by means of 
freebsd-update(8) when it is released.
You probably don't want to risk 7.1-PRERELEASE on a server, but for 
anyone running workstations, desktops, laptops I think it is worth 
trying at this moment.
