The latest release branch is currently at 1.4.2A. The "A" here should
be taken simply to mean that it's not exactly 1.4.2 anymore. Any
interface changes that are pulled up should be accompanied by a letter
bump, same as current. There may, or may not, be a 1.4.3_ALPHA or
BETA, which would indicate that the release is pending. The next
_release_ from that branch, the netbsd-1-4 branch, will be 1.4.3.
