From the download's README.txt:

zsh is the stable shell version. Currently this is on the 4.2 branch, which is now rather old.

zsh-dev is the development version of the shell. Currently this is on the 4.3 branch. Unless you are being ultra-careful, this is probably the one you want as it is likely soon to become the stable version.

You want the zsh-devel port, which is already at 4.3.12
