STABLE vs CURRENT packages

I just know that this is somewhere in the FreeBSD Handbook.
And I probably deserve the scorn and snickers these questions will get.
I just checked the .ftp://ftp.freebsd.org/pub/FreeBSD/ports/amd64/ site
I noted that the dates on the some of the packages in packages-8-stable
were 2012, while most of those in packages-8.4.-release were much newer
And I noticed that there was no 'packages-8-current' directory.
Questions: what is the relationship between the 'stable', 'release',
and 'current' versions?
And where is this documented in the FreeBSD Handbook?
Is there supposed to be a 'packages-8-current' directory?
OK, start the snickers and humiliation :-) ...
