Debian Xorg server release version confusion


As per the Xorg website [1], the latest stable release is 7.6 which
happened on 20 December 2010 and the next stable release will be 7.7
[2] somewhere in 2011 (which is not out yet).

So my question is how come Debian Squeeze (stable) has Xorg server
(xserver-xorg-core) 7.7 [3] already if the 7.7 is still under
development. However, if you see xserver-xorg [4], it says 7.5.

Can somebody care to explain what is happening here?
