Approximate release timeline for Rails 4?

Is there any targeted date for release of Rails 4? Best I could find Googling was "in 2012", but that could mean anything from days to months.

Asking because I've been running across some obscure bugs (https://github.com/rails/rails/issues/7809 for instance) in the course of a larger patch, and am curious if it would be better to split the bugs out as individual issues (happens sooner) or fix them in a bigger patch (takes longer).

Thanks,

Soonish. There are some things that are blocking the release, but
they're being worked on. There's no set date. All the major pieces are
in place.

Always split them up into the smallest possible things. Makes them
easier to review, makes them easier to write, makes it easy to pick
and choose between portions.

Talking of patches, is there any chance that someone could look at PR #6450 please. It’s to do with routing. It’s over 4 months old but I rebased it yesterday. If anyone has a couple of free minutes, could they pull it or let me know what needs changing please?

Thanks, guys.

Any Rails release timeline announcements are generally wrong, anyway.
