Should be that message <http://tug.org/pipermail/macostex-archives/2007-August/031851.html 

In short:

- The standard MacTeX-2007 package from <www.tug.org/mactex> contains  
the official 2007 TeXLive release (dated February) plus up-to-date  
versions of GUI applicatioons (TeXShop, BibDesk, Excalibur, LaTeXiT).  
In Linux parlance you would probably call that a stable release.

- At <http://www.tug.org/mactex/morepackages.html> you can get  
separately mactex-additions which contains these up-to-date GUI  
applications only, and texlive-2007-dev which contains a more up-to- 
date version of TeXLive (dated September). In Linux parlance that  
would be an unstable or development release, I imagine.

Hope this helps,
