Thats spot on.

Just an update on that: I did the first 5.6 installs yesterday, there 
are a few issues that still need resolving but i'd say this weekend the 
distro should mostly be handed over to the QA guys, so we should see a 
release by or before mid Feb. Ofcourse, this is based on no one finding 
a 'blocker' issue in the process. So salt accordingly.
