Note the line:

"The current plans are for one more FreeBSD 4.X release which will be
FreeBSD 4.11-RELEASE. It is expected the upcoming FreeBSD 5.3 release will
have reached the maturity level most users will be able to migrate to 5.X"

Keep an eye on the release notes for 4.11 when it goes golden.
