No big deal.  I just added all the appropriate links.

Actually 4.7.99.xx is a snapshot but the links are right now.

And it is getting closer.  I was planning on cutting 4.8.0

No release before its time around here.

Or the minute if you are unlucky enough. :-D  But generally
we try to keep it reasonably stable.
