We noticed that there is a plan to have 4.0.7 release at the end of May 2014, but we can't find any other information about it or links to the release candidate etc.. Is this the case?

Ian probably found this information on the RTC timelines page on jazz.net, i.e. :

As Ian correctly observes, an RTC-4.0.7 release is being worked on ... RC1 currently targeted for middle of June, and GA currently targeted for middle of July.  

My understanding is that RTC-4.0.7 is a bug-fix-only release for the 4.x series of releases.  In the past, for bug-fix releases, RTC has used both 4 digit release numbers (e.g. RTC-4.0.0.1 was a bug-fix release for 4.0) and ifix release numbers (e.g. RTC-3.0.1.6.ifix1 was a bug-fix release for RTC-3.0.1.6).  As I recall, RTC-4.0.7 was at one time going to be named RTC-4.0.6.1, but we'll need someone from the release team to explain the how the numbering choices have evolved over time.

There is always a new release at the beginning of the June. IBM announce it during that year's Innovate.

HI Canberk

We are aware that RTC 5.0 is due to be announced at Innovate, but we are not sure about the 4.x stream release 4.0.7, which seems to be planned for release at about the same time.

4.0.6 is the end of the 4.x line.

if you look at the downloads, there has always been a beta and release candidate with the next release number.
