I assume 2.9.7.0 is the current version, It was released 10/23/14 so will the VRT rules stop working for 2.9.5.6 90 days from the release of 2.9.7.0?

We will stop building and releasing 2.9.5.6 rules around that day, correct.  The final day of 2.9.5.6 will either be the 20th, or the 22, as we build and release on Tuesday and Thursdays.

You are encouraged to upgrade to the latest release.   At this point, evidence shows that most people have migrated to 2.9.6.2 or 2.9.7.0 from 2.9.5.6, the vast majority of users seem to be on 2.9.6.2 at this point.
