Are there significant bug and security fixes in the new version? If so, please report a bug and it may get upgraded sooner rather than later.
If the gains are only slight then the package will be left.

Ubuntu is not a rolling release distribution and packages are frequently left un-updated. The repositories are not updated just because a new version of a program is released.
