A new selection is made of the most practical of the many explicit Runge-Kutta formulas of order 4 which have been proposed. A new formula is considered, formulas are modified to improve their quality and efficiency in agreement with improved understanding of the issues, and formulas are derived which permit interpolation. It is possible to do a lot better than the pair of Fehlberg currently regarded as "best".
