So, you do go through stages.  You just misnomered them.

Why not just use that?

Release Candidate
Final Release Candidate (LO v4.3.0)
Stable (LO v4.2.6)

Please read this page to know more about our development process
and this to know more about the naming of our versions

May be you'll understand that both are fully tested and stable.

But one is "more stable".

But LibreOffice is a software that is used in very different
environments that we can't reproduce in our own. That's why, the time
being, advanced users are helping us to reduce the number of bugs and
regressions, that doesn't make the version unstable however.

No, but it does make it "less stable".

These are important terms that are widely used in open source software.
Why does LO feel the need to be different? It can only lead to
confusion, especially with a lack of explanation around the terms on
the download page.

And I'd go so far as to say that the chosen alternatives are poor.
"Fresh" might be fine, but "Still" makes one think that it has reached
end of life, and won't be updated anymore.
