We've talked about doing a 6.7.1 bug fix release, but we've also talked about
the next release including some pretty big changes (such as Composite & Damage),
in which case 6.8.0 would make more sense. In either case, I would expect the
next release will not be 6.7.0 and that you should expect 3-digit releases at
some point in the future.
