Hi Rip,

The current shipping version of Time Series is 5.2 compatible. An update 
of Time Series for 6.0 compatibility is in progress and will take care 
of dependencies on packages obsolete in 6.0. The documentation will also 
be updated for version 6.0 compatibility.

The unmodified 5.2 compatible package, however, will work fine in 6.0. 
It will need to load the packages you note and will generate obsolete 
package messages, but the obsolete package messages for 
Statistics`DescriptiveStatistics` and LinearAlgebra`MatrixManipulation` 
can be ignored.
