They will be supported in the next *major* release, which will be 1.7.0.
The 1.5.x updates since 1.5.24 are basically only bugfixes.  They don't
get new functionalty over earlier releases.  1.7.0 will take some more
time.  No schedule yet.  Feel free to test developer versions from as long as you don't use them in production
