Mea culpa - I've not been doing nearly good enough a job at keeping the community informed :( Here's the status - an engagement that we're doing has been bringing up some issues regarding ZODB and ZEO in large-scale environments. I think that the fixes are useful enough that they should be in 2.6.1, but getting them "finalized" has taken longer than I expected. I'll know better later today, but I expect that the fixes will be wrapped up this week, enabling a 2.6.1 b2 next week. Because it has dragged out so long, I'd prefer to get the ZODB fixes in, release 2.6.1 b2 and hopefully soon thereafter a 2.6.1 final with no further changes. A 2.6.2 effort could start as soon after as needed, to add the other fixes mentioned and hopefully also include the fruit of another bug day. Again, sorry about the confusion...
