As long as there are minor features, I see no reason to have it be labeled as 2.0.6. If it were a ton of new features, and a lot of changes then 2.1 would make since, but I think we are still a long ways away from 2.1. I’m able to compile the nsis installer whenever were ready for the 2.0.6 release.

I think there are *many* traditional version-numbering policies, and I
don't really agree with the compatibility-related aspect of that one.
Kind of irrelevant to us as we have not changed our project formats
incompatibly for many years.
However, we may well have fallen into only updating PATCH numbers. But I
think for 2.0.5 and newly for 2.0.6, the new features are really minor
(right?) and it's mostly about lib updates. I welcome comment on whether
that's a fair summary.
And as to the ASAP -- there are very substantial new features in the
wings, and they will deserve higher-level version increment.
