CURRENT is the development version of FreeBSD, basically for developers
only, those who want to test the finest and newest options, and do not
fear a complete systems failure from time to time (CURRENT does not
always compile, and when it compiles, it may be unstable)
CURRENT is only in 5.x present, since 4.x is a stable branch by now.
Sometimes really nifty features from CURRENT are migrated into STABLE
(and thus eventually in RELEASE) after careful testing.
