Is there an update for Lightroom 5.7? (if so, where is it?)

I think they're telling you that there is an update to Lightroom 5.7.1, which is Lightroom 6. If you think that telling you about an update that isn't free is lame, well, yes it's lame. I seem to recall that I got a notification of Lightroom 5 when I was using LR4, and LR5 wasn't a free update either. I guess it's just what they do.
