Version 2.49.4 is the current release version. Any higher number version is pre-release.

What's the advantage/ disadvantage of the "unofficial" release - are they stable? better?

Thanks!

2.9x? Where do you see that?

SM is not totally dead, Mouse4. it's just on hold until a new build infrastructure gets implemented for SM:

after that happens, an official SM 2.49.5 release may come though - just not quite in the immediate future

The builders are now happily building. Just manually for now but they do. I already did x86 and shiny new x64 test builds for 2.49.5 on Windows and IanN for Linux and macOS. Some final fixes are being prepared.

although too little too late for me as I will permanently stop using any SM 2.49.x version on all my computers and will use either the 2.53 or 2.57 versions in July; that's when Mozilla will release FF 68 ESR

2.57 is not yet ready for the public. When 2.49.5 is done I hope to have more time for it. As an interm 2.53 will probably stay with us a while longer.

though I'm already beta testing 2.57 on a backup hard drive on a PC recently. I have removed SM v2.49.5 on all of my other computers and have upgraded them to either 2.53 or 2.57 since the 2nd half of 2019 has begun
