And this has been passed off as a bugfix version far too hastily. Just because it's called v6.11 and not v6.2 doesn't mean it's just some lame version - new features have been added after all.

Well, it is just a bug fix release. That doesn't make it Lame though. I prefer bug fix releases, With additions here and there, rather than waiting for a major version, which takes months and months, and includes all the bug fixes and new features at once.
