Ubuntu tends not to update software just because a new version is available. Before any software makes it into the repositories it needs to be tested.

For that reason software only tends to be updated with new releases of Ubuntu unless it fixes a significant bug or adds a wanted new feature.

If you think the new version should be available report a bug explaining what is new and why we should use the latest version and it will be considered.

Can you help with this problem?
