Good question.  I made a push for a 4.8.0 release about six
weeks ago, but got bogged down in the number of open bugs
and ultimately failed to bring forward even a beta.

I certainly do not feel the bug backlog needs to be cleared before
a release.

That is a very good question.  I'd appreciate folks identifying bugs
(on list, or possibly by setting the milestone to 4.8.0 in Trac) that
they think are important to fix before we proceed with a release.
Some I have trouble judging the importance of.

I'd like to have a PROJ 4.8.0 release completed in August.
