Pathauto 5.x-2.x is functionally (and almost codewise) identical to 
6.x-1.x. Pathauto 6.x-2.x is where new features get in now. Once Drupal 
7 comes along, Pathauto 7.x-1.x will be the branch porting the Pathauto 
6.x code, no matter if we're still at 6.x-2.x, or if we've reached 
6.x-9.x – the first major Pathauto version branch for Drupal 7 will be 
Pathauto 7.x-1.x.
