I don't know, but if so I'd be very surprised if there was more than 
just one more build of either v6.x or 7.x.

V8.0 is the future of the platform, and it benefits all of us to move 
away from the expense of maintaining three different versions ASAP.

If you're able to help test v8 that'll help ensure it does everything 
your project needs.  A Community Edition is available for v8.0, and in 
addition to representing where the code base is going it also includes 
hundreds of fixes and enhancements not backportable to older versions, 
so whether you begin testing with it today or wait until it's released 
it'll be a very good transition.
