Now is the time to decide whether to use 4.2 or 4.4 for the release.
I am of course inclined to chose the latter and start uploading the 
current svn snapshots but I wanted to see if other's opinions have 
changed since last time the subject was discussed.

There would be two months to test and stabilize this so I think the 
risks are low, but would feel a lot more secure if I wasn't alone in 
thinking this.
