Yes, you can upgrade one node at a time and it will particpate w/ the
0.6.1 nodes until they are done too.  Just restart w/ 0.6.6, no data
migration or commitlog drain needed.  No api changes were made.

You should look at the changes because some defaults were improved.  I
don't think any are mandatory but I wouldn't swear to it.

0.7 can read 0.6 data files but is not a drop-in replacement.  See
"Upgrading" in
