I already mentioned that I really need large file support, and I'd add
that I have some problems with profiling (segfaults, internal errors¹),
both under 6.0 and 6.0.1.  Is this known and/or fixed?  And was there
any answer to the original question:

>> When can we expect 6.2?

I can work e.g. the large file issue by using multiple files, but as
it's going to be fixed RSN, I haven't bothered yet.  An approximate
schedule would be nice, I promise not to blame anybody if it doesn't
hold. :-)


¹ If it's not a known issue, I can tar up one of these. It's a fairly
large example, but it seems to be consistently happening.
If I haven't seen further, it is by standing in the footprints of giants
