Why do Ubuntu releases keep old versions of software ?

Asked by Fabián Rodríguez on 2010-04-07

I know what this is, but I am looking at any official documentation that clearly explains it.

This other question is similar:
https://answers.edge.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/update-manager/+question/19937

Can someone point me to official documentation (or community docs) explaining this ?

Once again, please don' t explain in lenght and detail why this Ubuntu keeps " old" software versions after it' s released. I am looking for OFFICIAL DOCUMENTATION that explains it.

Thank you!
