Yep, just as they've been telling us for nearly a year, once v8.0 is 
released the massive technical and financial burden of maintaining three 
separate versions simultaneously is gone.

V6 and v7 each served a useful place along the road to where we are now 
(mostly for isolating the deep changes for Cocoa and Unicode, 
respectively), but their purpose has been served and now it's time to 
get back to a more normal development path.

At this point v6 and v7 have joined v5 and v4 and all other earlier 
versions, having reached sustainable end-of-life, still available for 
download but no longer maintained.

Bug fixes and enhancements going forward will go into the v8.x series 
and beyond....
