Well, for starters the viewer is still unstable. The background support
is broken (of course this is not a regression). New features are
introduced and as we see they break other things. I cannot give you a
list of problems right now but if it need be I'll start keeping track of
problems posted on the list and problems that I encounter.

It is not necessary to create a new branch. 4.6.1 should be fine - it just
has to be kept current. We can relase both from HEAD and 4.6.x too - just
a thought.

I want a new release not so far in the distant feature - in 1 or 2 months.
I have concerns that HEAD is not ready for the public - of course this
might be just me.

4.6.2. HEAD is much more then 4.6.1 -> 4.6.2, IMHO
