News will be announced when all other parts of the MediaMonkey web presence are updated accordingly.

MM4 is no longer a beta. The main http://www.mediamonkey.com web site hasn't been updated yet but if you're here in the forum you should be able to find it.

That's because the Beta forum is for beta testers, not users.

The user community wants a finished product.

I guess there are poeple who does not check the Beta forum so :

We're happy to announce MediaMonkey 4 Release Candidate 1. There are still likely going to be a few fixed and changes before MediaMonkey 4 is released, but all confirmed severe issues have been resolved. We're going to take the next little while to verify some of the fixes that haven't yet been tested, and fix any new 'urgent' bugs that are discoverd. We're looking forward to your feedback--please raise (or re-raise) any serious bugs that you've noticed to the forum. Thanks.
You can download it in the beta forum (direct link)

It's way too late to add new features as they are now really close to RC.
That being said, MM3 already supports WinAMP plugins. I would be surprised if there were no parametric EQ available somewhere.

Would it be possible to give the new MM 4 some sort of parametric Equalizer? That would be very nice, since I've seen some thing like that in "Foobar" at a friends computer.

I'm not sure when the exact date when version 4 will make its appearance but I can truly say, not only me, but there are hundreds that are anxiously waiting for it! Still haven't read in any of the post when any alphas will be ready for testing either. Someone please post if you can answer this question. Thanks

As for me i don't see any bloat in the program at all only the use of cpu cycle bloat in some of the new features but rusty said its not
an optimized test version and they should have that fixed by the RC or stable version, but bloat in monkey i have never seen it as far i can remember?

I am absolutely happy with MM3, it has exceeded all my expectations especially given the help and guidance from this forum which in my view has no equal in the field of forums.

I have a reasonably sized video music collection (all on dvd and paid for) and I am at the point where I would like to add these to my library, at the very least the audio component. This will entail buying software to "rip" the audio, downsize to CD format and convert to Flac. Before I buy software I am wondering whether it is intended that MM4 would be able to do this. Will it allow me to add my DVD's to my library as I can do with my CD's ? If the answer is yes I am happy to wait patiently till the release comes and yes, I am willing to pay for it.

I am a gold member and consider MM the best value for money I know of in software.
Video is handled essentially the same as audio. However, you cannot rip DVDs. I guess it's a matter of copyright issues and DRM.

Yes, you can stream from and to MediaMonkey using DLNA.

DLNA as in 'Digital Living Network Alliance'? Does that mean the ability to stream music from a central PC to other machines and portable device? That would be a very nice addition indeed.

Is there a more 'newbie friendly' way of learning about what is new than going through the changelogs? There are quite a few changelogs, and a lot of it seems to be about fixing regressions, etc. Just wondering whether someone might have written a post/FAQ/doc with a summary of what has changed.

Cheers.
Any official summary of new additions will probably not come until the final release. That being said, there was a thread started in the moderators forum where someone asked about new features. Here are some of the posts from that thread:

Don't know if you have any Upnp devices, but the media sharing is supremely awesome. I can listen to MM music from a PS3 or Xbox now. The new art browser is pretty cool. I like the new sync features and the device config by clicking on the device node - it's much more intuitive than before. There's also the new secure ripping mode for CDs, which I'm eager to try but haven't had a new CD in awhile to test on. Ability to use 2-4 columns in the column browser is an easy one to miss, but a nice touch.

Also, check out Options > Playback rules, you can customize what info is displayed in the player for each collection type. (using the summary format mask).

And not to toot my own horn, but I'm pretty happy with how Vitreous turned out. The aero player is something I've looked forward to for awhile. :D

Each build in the Beta forum has a changelog. Video, DLNA and Portable Installer are the 3 big additions in MM4.
