Well, as Simon Cozens reports in the most recent P5P Digest (which has gone out to the mailing list, but has yet to appear online):
5.6.x delayed People seemed to think that this was monumental and catastrophic; it's not, but I mention it anyway: Alan asked what was happening to 5.6.1 - we've seen one trial release, and another one is eagerly expected. Sarathy replied that he probably won't have time to do anything much with it for the next few weeks, and offered to hand over maintainance of 5.6.x to anyone who wants it. People get busy; it's not the end of the world. Still, it does look like 5.6.1 is going to take a while to get out there. Hold on tight, though; my crystal ball tells me that Jarkko's been doing some work merging bleadperl patches into the 5.6 maintainance branch.
