I've got a medium Capra 29 and I'm 5,6". Large would be way to big in my opinion.

I have a medium 2019 Capra 27.5. I'm 5'6". Fits me perfectly.

I'm 5'6" and I ordered a medium 2020 29er. I was a little iffy about the sizing b/c I heard the same thing as you, that the sizes are a little small, but decided that the medium was the safest bet as the large sizing goes all the way up to 6'.

I guess we'll see in late Feb. whether I made the right decision but it seems that I did according to PetrolHead209's comment.

I bought a size Large 2018 Capra CF Race Pro from a fellow PB member who is a little taller than me (I'm 5'8" with more torso). Some of the geo is similar to my Medium Yeti SB130 so it doesn't feel larger save for the longer WB. However, I slapped on a MRP Bartlett dual-crown fork with a short stem so the reach makes it feels like a smaller bike. Time will tell, but I am more of a plow guy in terms of riding style so I think I'll be okay.
