You could use v6, but you would have to bypass the pre-requisite checks. However, please note that you have to complete certain steps prior to deploying v6. Right now, I personally feel it isn't worth the headache. I've come across various issues with dashboards and data not ingesting correctly.

I used the 5.x version and it's working. Not sure why Splunk released the 6.x version and didn't include it as part of this. Must be for something else.
