Releases are never done from trunk. First, a fixes (fixes_2_8 in this case)
is created, and then a beta and a RC are done from that branch, and
typically about 4-6 months after the fixes branchpoint there is a release.

(e.g. fixes_2_6 was branched in may or june, and release january 1st the
next year)

Rule of thumb for fixes releases is that there will be one more release from
the current fixes branch unless the new fixes branch has been created or
will be created very shortly after.

I've always assumed that the next release will be 2.6.4.
