There hasn’t been an official announcement yet, but I noticed that SVN was tagged with WordPress 2.7.1-beta1 the other day. Though there have been many patches in the 2.7 branch since the last release, most of what I’ve seen appears to be pretty minor bugfixes (though one patch jumps out at me). You can peruse the list of changes since 2.7 yourself.
I’m sure it won’t be too long before we hear something more official.
