Actually, Mozilla 0.7 is about a week behind the nightly builds. The main development trunk goes through a freeze where only a few select bug fixes are allowed, normally to fix recent regressions and some "polish" that normally doesn't go into a nightly build.

After a few days of this, a branch of the code is created. The main trunk opens up again to continue work on the next version (Mozilla 0.9 in this case). The branch then gets more polish and only very essential bug fixes that won't cause any possible stability problems and after a few this, it is released as a new milestone (Mozilla 0.8).
