Time for a 4.8.4 release

Well fine then release it here is my +1,

but WHEN is the time to ask for fixes or to review open bugs for 
potential inclusion in maintenance releases. There is never any urgency 
around fixes until someone talks about a release. I don't think these 
are so much favorite wishes as much as legitimate request for known bugs 
to be fixed. I'm happy to debate if a bug should or should not be part 
of a major, minor or dot release.
