Why the jump from 1.5.6 to 6.0?
The release notes say (under "6.0"):
"PROCESS Version numbers are now simply X.Y where the leading 1 has been dropped."
I'm guessing this is to start honoring the convention (e.g. from semver) that backwards incompatible changes should only be made when the major version number is incremented.
