The problem is that it is difficult to find a word that explains that one
version is new (with new features/bugs/regressions) and the other one has
been patched so that new features are already stable.

Is this some sort of l10n/i18n issue? I ask because this problem has been
solved for many other projects and for a great many years. The process is
Development > Test > Production and these terms are widely respected and
understood. Debian uses the variation "unstable", "testing", "stable", and
"oldstable". I think a term like "production" should be considered for the
more mature series. I agree with NoOp on this issue. The current name
choices add nothing of value or clarity.

Best wishes, Owen.
