I personally think that development should head on to 1.6, with usability
coming first and the things listed on the Codex afterwards (updated
usability is not enough on its own to constitute a new release imho). Not to
say that development and bugfixing to the 1.5 branch should be discontinued,
but focus should shift to adding new features, and bugfix releases should
come as needed.
And a question about the Version 1.6 page on the codex. Is that supposed to
be RFC 3229 instead of RPC 3229. Not much came up for RPC 3229. There's also
some talk about the same thing, so maybe someone knows?
