OpenBSD moved to two days ago. Updates are done as critical 
issues are discovered (for instance, we moved from to after the botnet issue a few months back), more or less (or 
a new stable). We do not maintain two branches, so it's your 
responsibility to edit the port Makefile to the version you want if it's 
not the one we offer. This is what I do with NYCBUG1.

In practice, this is really quite trivial, but I'm willing to post the 
step-by-step if people here really need that.
