Version 5.6 of Exuberant Ctags has been uploaded.

Exuberant Ctags is a companion to programmers' editors such as vi and 
emacs.  It extracts "tags" from source code, which the editor then uses 
to locate symbols in the program on demand.

This release is to track a new upstream release.  It is also the first 
version of ctags released under my maintainership.  Please don't bug 
Corinna any more about ctags. :)
