If you mean the --enable-release-build switch, that has been introduced to the master branch only.

Please note that we have never tested in practice full-scale what effect it has on our build. What if it has some unintended unexpected consequence, that didn't show up in OOo's "OOo-Dev' builds? For instance due to our multi-lingual installer mechanism. Then we would need to fix that, and probably yet another beta.

Also, I assume the plan is that beta4 will be ready by weekend. If we would cherry-pick the change that introduced that switch to the 3-4 branch now, the beta4 build would have to be restarted, and as it takes more or less a day especially for Windows, and the working hours are already over today, we would not have time to get a build before the weekend.
