In short, another "major" RPM release is approaching and it's about time 
for public beta. The most notable improvements over the 4.7.x codebase 
include:

- Much faster transaction population (some statistics available
   here: http://laiskiainen.org/blog/?p=19)
- Largely rewritten install + erase ordering code (yes, erasures ordered
   too finally), smarter handling of dependency loops etc
- Major revamp of Python bindings, including preliminary support for
   Python 3.x
- Lots of bugs old and new fixed

Further details and download information can be found in the draft release 
notes at http://rpm.org/wiki/Releases/4.8.0
