1. you mean "current", not "actual". The English "actual" has a meaning 
that is different from similar words in many other European languages.

2. 2.4.18 and 3.0.5 are not the current versions, at least not entirely. 
They may be the most current versions your distribution offers, but the 
real current versions are these:

• 2.4.20

• 2.5.11

• 3.0.5

For a new installation you should in my opinion use the newest available, 
in this case 3.0.5
