As I understand it (tho I'm sure Fote will be emailing you this as well,
so if his explanation differs from mine, use his ^_^), the -FM designation
indicates work done beyond the released 2.5 code, by Foteos Mercrides (I
think that's how it's spelled). When 2.5-FM was deemed stable, a "snapshot"
of it was made at that point, and released as 2.6. Development of 2.6 is
continuing under the -RJP tree now (Fote's on a break).
I seem to recall the reason for freezing at a version is some people are
understandably shy of using a code base that's changing daily. :)
So, if you were following the near-daily release of new code from the FM
tree up until it stopped, no, just rename it 2.6. If you weren't, pull
down 2.6 and compile it.
