I don't have much time to make large changes in the code base (my
Knuth-Plass work is unfortunately in standby now), but for a release it
should not be a problem, I'll do it.

All the "heavy" tasks like #40717, #40716 obviously won't be there in a
near future so it's a good time to make a new release.

I will push a fix for #55334 during the beta cycle, I don't have other
fix in mind.

'make distcheck' works fine for me too (Archlinux-based distro).

If no one oppose to it I should be able to push a release candidate tag
in the next couple of days.
