Openswan-1 is the continuation of 'super-freeswan'. It is in maintanance mode,
meaning no active development happens there.

Openswan-2 is th current tree. Openswan-2.0.0 is based on freeswan-2.0x
(before they removed AH support)

Openswan-2 has support for the 2.6 kernel. The 1 series do not.
Openswan-2 has X.509 and XAUTH. AES is being worked on in a seperate cvs branch. 
NAT-T should be in the 2.1 either already or very soon. DPD still needs to go in.

For up to date information, use the cvs:
