Based on past release history of SGE, I would say that SGE 6.1 will
get a few more updates before it gets EOL.

For example, we have SGE 6.0 update 12 and SGE 6.1 update 3 released
at around the same time.

Besides those already mentioned by Dan, there are also the training
course and workshop/conference materials:
