Please see the following for an overview:
The definition of the -STABLE branches is that we try to keep the interfaces
to the kernel stable. While this helps also keep the src tree itself stable,
from time to time regressions will be introduced as changes are merged back
from the -CURRENT branch.
So, for the src tree, there are:
- releases, which are not updated;
- releases plus security fixes;
- -STABLE branches;
- the -CURRENT branch.
The ports tree is not branched, so you can consider that everything is
"current". If you need to stay with a ports tree that is more tested,
you'll need to stay with the ports tree that came with a -release.
