Ubuntu remind package is out of date.

Asked by Rupert

The ubuntu package for remind provides 3-01-05, but the latest stable version is 3.01.08. This has affected me because the older version is not responding correctly to certain command line arguments as far as i can tell. I have downloaded and compiled the new one, and it seems to compile and work just fine.

I have a feeling im reporting this in the wrong place but im not sure where i should have reported it.

Log a bug stating what security holes the newer version cures. If they are significant then th package will be fasttracked to the updates.
You could compile the new version yourself.

Can you help with this problem?
