[K12OSN] Redhat package naming conventions



I need some education on Redhat's package naming conventions. Let's say if
I do an apt-get update and the newest php package it downloads is
php-4.2.2-8.0.8.i386.rpm (there were several php updates released from
redhat last week) is that really the plain jane php 4.2.2? Security holes
and all? Or does Redhat put together the last stable packages and apply
the security fixes? I mean there's already a php 5.0 beta and a person
should be running 4.3.2 at least. Can someone explain?
