Currently, the latest version of Apache JMeter is 2.7.

I suggest you report a bug, stating what new features and bugs the new versions sort out. If they are significant the package will be updated sooner rather than later

Wheezy is the testing beta Debian release so will more than likely have the newest stuff. Similarly:

$ apt-cache policy jmeter
jmeter:
  Installed: (none)
  Candidate: 2.5.1-1
  Version table:
     2.5.1-1 0
        500 http://gb.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ quantal/universe i386 Packages

As Quantal is the current unstable Ubuntu. Same difference

Hi,

Not sure if I should create a new question for this hence posting my query in the same question. Here's the output of

lsb_release -a; uname -a; apt-cache policy jmeter

I have the same query, although the latest version available on http://jmeter.apache.org/download_jmeter.cgi is 2.13, it install JMeter 2.8 via ubuntu package manager (i.e. `sudo apt-get install jmeter` )

Can you help with this problem?
