Hi Kathy,

I hate to burst the bubble, but that page is actually quite old. It is a
leftover from when development of X6 was going strong, prior to all the
layoffs. I'm not sure how you found it, but it is likely just content on
a staging server that was never deleted.

The actual "What's new in this release" topic can be found at:

As to the features in the page you found, boy, some of them sure look
familiar. :0)
