It is actually possible to apt-get dist-upgrade to a VX 2.5.7 image from VX 2.5.6. There are two packages which stand in the way of that upgrade; both of which are not relevant to VX so they can be held. In order set a hold on them perform the following steps.

sudo su
apt-get update`
echo "cl-image" hold | dpkg --set-selections
echo "cl-platform-config" hold | dpkg --set-selections
apt-get dist-upgrade

After performing these steps you'll be left with 2.5.6 VX that has all the 2.5.7 packages.

root@leaf1:/home/vagrant# cat /etc/lsb-release
DISTRIB_ID="Cumulus Linux"

Hopefully that can hold you over until an official binary can be released.
