The latest and last release on the RELENG_5 branch is 5.5, 5.4 is not 
supported as I understand. In any case it is a good idea to plan 
migration to 6.x or 7.0. 6.x will become legacy release branch once 7.0 
is released.

Regarding 5.5:
"This is the last planned release on the 5-STABLE branch. The FreeBSD 
development community is currently focusing its efforts on the 6-STABLE 
and CURRENT codelines. No new major features are planned for the 
5-STABLE branch, although minor updates and bugfixes may be merged at 
the discretion of individual developers. The FreeBSD security team will 
support the FreeBSD 5.5-RELEASE-based security branch with advisories 
and security patches until the end-of-life date documented at (as of this writing, May 31, 2008)."

Cheers, Erik
