Wayne has just tagged version
6.0.0-rc2. We believe this to be the version that will become v6 but due to having made a lot of bug fixes to the code since
6.0.0-rc1, we’d like to get more testing done before we finally tag
6.0.0 in case there are any final critical bugs that should be addressed before release.
We are now in a soft code freeze where only critical and high priority bug fixes will be addressed and only after code review by two other lead developers.
If no critical/high priority bugs are open on Monday morning (20-Dec),
6.0.0 will be tagged then and the packaging process can begin.

Please download the latest nightly and use it as much as you can, reporting any issues encountered (in particular any crashes or data loss) by going to Help->Report bug (you will need to create a gitlab account in order to report any issues).
Thanks to everyone that made this possible!
