The CURRENT or STABLE tags have nothing to do with RELENG. Both CURRENT
and STABLE are used for development. RELENG is just a snapshot with
additional messarues to minimise the chance of anything going wrong.
(RELEASE 5.0 was very much alfa, 5.1 was more like beta)

To answer the orginal question 5.3 is likly going to be STABLE. I can
not say this for certain. I currently run FreeBSD 5.2 with KDE without any major
problems. The only problems I have are: shutting down with power down
option and running vmware3
