Asked by Rajesh Pandian M

i am using Ubuntu 8.04 ,i have installed gammu through terminal
      sudo apt-get install gammu

when i checked the version of gammu installed ... it was 1.18.90. My Ubuntu says it is the recent version of gammu ...but it is not so!

Hardy is an LTS release, hence the priority are security updates instead of newest available versions of apps.
The LTS version is recommended for people in an environment (generally commercial/industrial) that want to keep the same version for a longer amount of time and do not require newer/faster/updated versions, but instead do not want things to change.

Can you help with this problem?
