4.x-RELEASE is essentially a snapshot of 4.x-STABLE, with a given x.
4.x-RELEASEs receive security updates only. 4.x-STABLE is the "working
version" that receives all fixes and enhancements.

5.x is CURRENT, not necessarily guaranteed to offer production-grade
stability. CURRENT is the main development branch. Again, there are
5.x-RELEASEs, taken as snapshots from CURRENT.

There is no 5.x-STABLE yet.

Probably, since you ask, 4.9-RELEASE is what you want to start with.
