It's not a distribution issue, it's an issue of turn-around when new
kernels come out. While 2.4.2 is a month old, 2.4.4 is currently what,
4 days old? Maybe 5? Kernel internals change, it's not necessarily
trivial to move something like XFS from one release to the next. It'll
happen, but you have to be a bit patient.
You say you want "Release 1.0," I assume that means you want something
that's feature-rich, tested and stable. That's XFS on 2.4.2/2.4.3,
that's what's currently supported on this release.
If you want bleeding edge, which is currently 2.4.4, that's available as
well - just do a CVS checkout of the development tree.
You've got tested & stable available, you've got bleeding edge as well.
I'm really not sure where the problem lies...
