6.0 is indeed receiving quite a bit of testing and bugfixing.  It's
a bit presumptuous to make public claims that it's "9-12 months away,"
though.  I can appreciate the conventional wisdom of staying away from
N.0 releases, but we are putting quite a bit of effort into this one.
6.1 is not going to be 9-12 months away either, nor will 6.2.  The 6.x
line is generating quite a bit of excitement and will be a very good set
of releases.
