Here is a good link that should explain the naming conventions with FreeBSD:

Quickly, the naming convention is that the code base is version 4 and 
the revision number is 11, meaning that there have been 11 updates to 
the 4 code base.  So there has been 4.1 4.2...4.9 4.10 4.11  This is 
similar to the linux kernel (2.4.0, 2.4.1...2.4.24 etc.).  So the 
numbers after the "dot" are infact not decimals when refering to releases.

So no I'm not thinking of 4.01 ;)
