A report in BGR states that beta 5 is the last beta and the next version will be the GM, or Gold Master version. This is the final version that developers take a look at before and if all is Ok, this is the version that is released to the public.
This could happen anytime from now onwards; there is no date for the release of the GM version other than it will be soon. The public version is usually released within 2 weeks of the final GM version.
