We are working now on a patch to bump this to include 10.0-stable. The 
reason why this wasn't bumped earlier was because it was deemed 
unacceptable that there wasn't a console driver that could work with the 
KMS driver. The infamous black screen when you started X, which stayed 
black even if you quit X. Now that vt(9) was merged to 10.0-stable this 
problem has been resolved, even if vt(9) isn't enabled by default yet.

Well I got some good news here, the radeonKMS driver was merged into 
9.2-stable. And it being investigated/worked on to get vt(9) also merged 
into the 9.2-stable branch.  So we can switch to the new Xorg version 
there too.
