This milestone is used to track bugs and other issues related to the 4.x series, and the progress bar has nothing to do with when the next 4.x release will ship.
Tickets assigned to the 'Future' milestone aren't targeted for inclusion in any specific release yet.
For example feature requests that have no designated champion yet or are still under discussion are often in this milestone.
