188.8.131.52 What Is FreeBSD-STABLE?
"FreeBSD-STABLE is our development branch from which major releases are
184.108.40.206 Who Needs FreeBSD-STABLE?
"For these reasons, we do not recommend that you blindly track
FreeBSD-STABLE, and it is particularly important that you do not update
any production servers to FreeBSD-STABLE without first thoroughly
testing the code in your development environment."
That would indicate to me that stable is stable, yet you would want to
stick to the releases for production environments. So apparently there
are different degrees of stable ;-)
Hope this helps.
