The 6.0 LTS will be supported for a while after the next LTS is
announced. I can't find an official number, but I am pretty confident
that the overlap will be at least six months.

I would, without a doubt, switch to 6.0. By now, the current 6.0 is
just as new as 6.1 and maybe also 6.2, with all the back ports which
have been done. We will also continue to back port fixes, and even
some features, to 6.0.

Are there any fetures in 6.2 or master that you need? Are there any
problems with 6.0, that you run into?
