A look at the PyPy 2.0 release
Hmmm, it's almost like you're new to this game! It's been so long since 2.5 that people have forgotten there used to be development series numbered 2.[odd] :)
No 2.7 ?

Of course, if he jumps to 2.8, then he's got the option of restarting the development branches, starting with 2.9, whereas if he makes 2.7 a release branch, it pretty much commits the project to not using odd-numbered development branches for a long time. So if he wants to keep that option open, jumping to 2.8 makes sense, but otherwise, it seems pointless and a bit weird.
