Clarifying Puppet Version Numbering

We are currently running puppet/puppet-server 3.8.1 (open source) on EL7. We would like to upgrade to puppet 4.x to leverage new language features, however the recently updated packages in appear to be no newer than 3.8, and some as old as 1.x and 2.x.

In addition, I saw this This Post which suggested that puppet 4.2 is puppet server 2.1, which totally confused me.

I'd appreciate if someone could clarify the version numbers, and if/when a 4.x RPM will be available for EL7.
