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.
