We've released Bolt 1.6.9 as a maintenance release for all Bolt users. This release also contains a security-fix and even though it's not exploitable from 'the outside', we still recommend this update for all Bolt users.
We're still hard at work on the "big 2.0" release. We currently have a 'feature freeze', and are working on slimming down the to-do list before we release a public beta. It's going to be awesomeballs, so everyone's patience will be rewarded. ^_^

To upgrade an existing install, or to setup a new one, just follow the instructions for installation or for updating. When you do an upgrade, you will not overwrite your modified settings with the upgrade. You should still make a backup before doing an upgrade, though. Get the latest .tgz or .zip, or browse the folder with the distributions. After the upgrade you will be prompted to update the Database, or you can just use
php app/nut database:updatefrom the command line.
