I'm sure development on SlimServer 6.0 is still steaming ahead - but how
is the current beta doing? Are many people running the 6.0 nightlies?
How stable is it?

Are we getting close to an official release?

I dont think its being called a Beta yet.

Let me add to Ben's questions. Can the 4.5.X and 6.X versions be
installed side-by-side on Linux so I can test 6.0 without giving up the
stability of 5.4.X?

if you avoid the RPMs, yes. The RPM is designed to upgrade over an existing
setup. Instead, download the 6.0 tar.gz, tar -zxvf on it, set the permissions
to teh user you want to run it as, then go for it. prefs and cache should
naturally appear in the user home directory.

I currently have 5.4.0, two copies of 5.4.1 and 4 copies of 6.0 set up on my
system.
