If you prefer to use the newest yade version and you do not "hack" the code, yade-daily is the best choice for you.
Installed once, you will get the updates automatically without recompiling the code.
Yade-daily is compiled automatically on build-servers of Launchpad, getting the code from the latest trunk version[1].

To install yade-daily you have to type in terminal following lines:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:yade-pkg/snapshots
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install yade-daily

Alternatively you can install yade-daily-doc and yade-daily-dbg:
sudo apt-get install yade-daily-doc yade-daily-dbg

After that yade can be easily started:
yade-daily

"Welcome to Yade 1+2902+27~natty1, from 2011-07-29..."

Where 2902 is the trunk version of yade [1].
Updates will be downloaded automatically each time, when you update your whole system.
