That's correct.  The stable branch is best described as dead.  It's
not only syslog_ng, but also many of its dependencies that aren't
available in the stable branch.  As far as I know, the stable branch
gets no updates and won't get any until further notice.  Even the
security updates -- they are only released to the current branch.
