Well, it is very difficult to predict the final release date. See here
for the undone backports which I have found (indeed, it is the task of
the respective developer to take care of that):



- Update Release/7.0.0RC1-News  <<- Should it become generic RC News?
- Update Splash screen
- Update Welcome screen

To be backported:
- r64270 raster3d docs
- r64239, r64216 temporal docs
- r64226 XML (?)

Relevant differences - to be clarified:
- various modules: %s= and %s= are mutually exclusive (r?)

All this needs to be solved for RC2.
