Yes, it's for the next major FPC release.

I would have liked to have known about the branch *before* it happened
too. I was waiting patiently on Michael to commit something that me
has written some months (or a year) ago [and have some a preview of
it]. I didn't want to bug him because I know he is busy too. But that
feature missing the 2.6.0 deadline means it will only be available in
the neeeext major release - some 2-3 years from down the line. :-(

It would be very nice if you can notify use a week or two before such
a branch. That way we know we need to finish up with what we are doing
if we want those features in the next major release.
