The 1.6 release was finalized last night, and is available for download on jqueryui.com. The blog post will go out as soon as the changelog is finished and Google’s CDN is updated.
Reminder: this is a legacy compatibility release for anyone still needing to use jQuery UI with jQuery 1.2.6, and will not be further developed. It is highly recommended you upgrade to 1.7 as soon as possible.
The jQuery UI Sprint is happening right now. Come join us! See the sprint wiki page for full info.
