6.0 *is* the stable version at the moment, that is rightfully 
recommended now. EOL means only one thing: no more releases for this 
branch are planned. This happens at the moment when the last release of 
the branch comes out. The last release for 6.0 brought last portion of 
the fixes; and at this moment, 6.0.7 is considered the most stable - and 
for that reason, recommended; and at the same time, TDF won't release 
any more patches to it - so it's EOLed. So do you suggest to only 
recommend versions that don't have the last pack of fixes?

Best regards,
