You could also report a bug. If the bug and security fixes in the new version are significant then the package will be updated sooner.

You can:

* build and install that version from the original source on your own system
* look for a PPA that has that version already
* create your own PPA with that version
* wait until the official packages are updated (this can perhaps be stimulated by creating a bug report)

I do not see any other possibility.
