The package installs an old version (0.8.2-1)

Asked by Handong Choi

Hi there,

When I try to install the package in 18.04 LTS by 'sudo apt install uftrace' command, it installs an old version of uftrace which is 0.8.2-1. But as you know the most recent version is 0.9.3-3. I don't know why but I think it needs to be installed with the latest version.

Adding detail:

$ sudo apt install uftrace

Handong Choi ; Hello:

Yes, that is the version that is generally available: >>
Package uftrace: bionic (18.04LTS)

"<ubottu> Packages in Ubuntu may not be the latest. Ubuntu aims for stability, so "latest" may not be a good idea.
               Post-release updates are only considered if they are fixes for security vulnerabilities, high impact bug
               fixes, or unintrusive bug fixes with substantial benefit. See also !backports, !sru, and !ppa"

-hope this resolves-
