That is the common pattern leading up to a release. See eg
and I quoteL  

  The release of 3.2.2 ("Fire Safety") is scheduled for August 14,
  2015. Release candidate tarballs will be made available during the week up to
  the release.

  2015-08-04: START (3.2.2 beta)
  2015-08-07: CODE FREEZE (3.2.2 RC)
  2015-08-14: RELEASE (3.2.2)

I made a first beta release for Debian on Aug 4th and plan to make one more
before August 14 when 3.2.2 becomes official.
