Planning a release 2.7 Thursday 19th.
2.6 was released from master, so I have today March 23 created a 2.6 branch in order to open master for features/strings. I do not expect a 2.6.1 release, but bug fixes should go both to master and 2.6.
I have not decided on betas (yet). I don't expect a lot of new features so...
Friday 13: Feature/String freeze
Thursday 19: Release
