I've seen the term "modern version" used several time on this list in the
past 6 months. Is there a community-accepted definition of this term? Is
it the latest release or the latest .x release?

The distinction is "modern" vs. "historic" - OpenLDAP 2.2 was moved to Historic status in January 2006. The original poster referenced 2.2.6, which was released February 2004. By any measure, in computer terms, that is ancient. When a release is declared Historic that means, among other things, that it will no longer be supported by the project - bug reports against them are not investigated, bug fixes for newer versions are not back-ported, etc.

Modern version generally refers to a recent release of the latest minor tree branch.

Or in this case, a fairly recent 2.3.x release.
