TeXLive 6 is already on CTAN, and is stable. Whether any user groups
will make a large-scale pressing imminently, I do not know. I do not
have the energy to get involved in that side of things :-}. So what I
am doing now is updating the sources of TeXLive, but I'll probably
leave the binaries as they are for a bit. If you have recommendations
for an xdvik strategy for texlive, just let me know...

has anyone tried the new "mdvi", by the way?

sounds good to me
