This statement though true is not really necessarily the case 
practically.. for instance: spamassassin in rhel4 is 3.1.8 (started at 
3.0.2) which is also the latest stable. This was done primarily for 
security fixes, but features got upgraded in the bargain. I could cite a 
few more examples if required (postfix 2.1.x to postfix 2.2.x etc).
