Default version of different apps in gentoo portage

Hello
I have a question about versions of some applications in gentoo portage.
As I noticed there are some apps which stable version aren't updated too frequently.

for example
mod_security for apache
on official page there is stable version 2.5.1 and in portage :

[ebuild R ] www-apache/mod_security-2.1.2 USE="-doc" 0 kB

amavisd
officialy - stable version 2.5.4 - there is even RC for 2.6 version and in portage:

[ebuild N ] mail-filter/amavisd-new-2.4.1 USE="mysql -ldap -milter -postgres" 823 kB

I understand that to be marked as stable in gentoo it needs to has some time but for example 2.4.1 amavisd version is from 2006.05.08
so it lasts really long and I don't know why?!
I know that I can install it from sources but for sure there's important reason why the newest versions aren't in portage.

and by the way - it's my first post here so best regards to everyone

See http://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=209632

Seems like version 2.5.2 has been marked stable since Jan 08 on x86,
Feb 05 on ppc64, Feb 17 alpha/sparc, Feb 22 ppc. Try syncing your
portage tree.
