26 October 2011 - Eggdrop 1.6's last hurrah?
Announced as the last official version in the eleven-year reign of the 1.6 series, Eggdrop 1.6.21 has been released. A bug that caused the bot to crash when restarting after unsetting nick-len has been fixed since the release candidate but, apart from that, no further changes have been made other than the removal of RC1 from the version.
4 October 2011 - Eggdrop 1.6.21 Release Candidate 1
A pre-release version of Eggdrop 1.6.21 is ready for download. With the focus of development largely shifted toward 1.8, this could be the final version in the 1.6 series. Users have around two weeks to try the release candidate and report bugs before the final 1.6.21 is expected. Updates since 1.6.20 include:

24 September 2010 - TxtGhOsT backdoor
Wulfe has posted a warning about the script TxtGhOsT 3.3.1, which he has discovered contains a backdoor. The script was recently added to the Tcl Archive and has now been removed.
Upon loading the script, a user with the handle "MoOoN" is created with full privileges, and the channel #PakBots is added. People who've loaded this script on their bots are advised to remove it and examine their user file for any users that should not be there, while those who wish to be extra careful may consider rebuilding their bot from scratch.
24 July 2010 - Eggdrop 1.6.20 released
After two release candidates, the final version of Eggdrop 1.6.20 is now ready. Apart from an update to the changes file and the removal of RC2 from the version number, 1.6.20 is identical to the second release candidate. Download it from the eggheads FTP server or view the updates file here.
Users of languages other than the five included with Eggdrop will be pleased to hear that few changes have been made to the language files, meaning additional language files created for 1.6.16-1.6.19 should work fine with 1.6.20.
