I was surprised to see the stable release out so soon too. Debian 11 is
tentatively due to be released EOM July .
For what it's worth, we upgraded to PVE 6.4 a fortnight ago and have
enjoyed no problems thus far.
With PVE 7.x, we'll probably wait for the release of PVE 7.1 which
should be "truly stable".
