+  <p>
+    This release had been overdue for at least half a year, but due to constant activity in the repository,
+    had to be delayed, and we were finally able to branch off the release recently, before some of the large
+    changes scheduled for 7.0 were merged.
+  </p>
+  <p>
+    Internally, we have had a number of changes too. The FFT, MDCT, DCT and DST implementation used for codecs
+    and filters has been fully replaced with the faster libavutil/tx (full article about it coming soon).</br>
+    This also led to a reduction in the the size of the compiled binary, which can be noticeable in small builds.</br>
+    There was a very large reduction in the total amount of allocations being done on each frame throughout video decoders,
+    reducing overhead.</br>
+    RISC-V optimizations for many parts of our DSP code have been merged, with mainly the large decoders being left.</br>
+    There was an effort to improve the correctness of timestamps and frame durations of each packet, increasing the
+    accurracy of variable frame rate video.
+  </p>
+  <p>
+    Next major release will be version 7.0, scheduled to be released in February. We will attempt to better stick
+    to the new release schedule we announced at the start of this year.
+  </p>
+  <p>
+    We strongly recommend users, distributors, and system integrators to upgrade unless they use current git master.
+  </p>
