We generally discuss release issues on the dev-list so you can track progress 
of upcoming releases there. 

We are working towards a 1.6 release but there is a good deal of new 
functionality we wish to get right before we release. I would expect a first 
beta in a month or two but that is highly dependent on many external factors 
such as available free time, whether some features have design problems, bug 
loads, etc.

We are contemplating a 1.5.4 release to address one or two issues created by 
the javah changes in the latest JDK release. The effort to get that release 
out might delay 1.6. This is still under consideration. I would not expect a 
1.5.5 at all.

So I can't give you a definitive timeframe but the above is an indication.
