Yes and no. It is the preparation of a whole new series of releases, 2.6.x.

The primary branching of a fixes branch is the first step of this process.

In the past this really was a watershed event, but in recent times, trunk is
much more stable, and fixes are regularly merged.

No, since there isn't any. It is all done in cooperation with the people
that actually have to build it.

I think there will be some RC1 or so in september.
