RedHat has a policy of nailing down nominal versions of software with 
each major RHEL release and then backporting whatever fixes they deem 
important into their packages over the life of the major release, adding 
their own subordinate versioning. I know from working on the 
SpamAssassin security team that RH is particularly attentive to security 
issues and other major bugfixes.
