RAR version is very old and beta – need new version.

Asked by W5WMW

The current latest version of RAR for Linux (32 and 64 bit) is v3.9.3—a stable version. The version in the repository is an ancient beta. Please, I beg you, upgrade RAR to the latest version. The versions are available at www.rarsoft.com.

Thank you.

Answers is not the best place to ask for a software upgrade. Here we help people to solve simple problems in their use of Ubuntu, we can't decide to upgrade a software :)

What I suggest you is to look for RAR on Launchpad and simply fill a bug report asking for the upgrade. That's the best way to get in contact with the people managing RAR in Ubuntu.
