The fourth number is the svn revision of the build. It's important that
this number increases with each build, otherwise the msi installer would
not recognize that it's a new version and fail to work correctly.

Since this time, svn should not take as much time to get to the next
release (1.8), I think waiting for that isn't a bad idea.
