2.5.7 is really 2.5.6 (11 months old) plus a security fix to
protect against crackers.  2.6.0 has almost a year of fixes
and enhancements. 

One warning, because there have been so many protocol
changes since 1.6.2 a new rsync will be incompatible.
So if you are rsyncing with other machines that are running
anything prior to 1.7.0 they will also need upgrading.
On the plus side, once you upgrade you will be able to do
downloads from internet rsync servers.
