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

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

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

Optionally you can install yade-stable-doc and yade-stable-dbg:
sudo apt-get install yade-stable-doc yade-stable-dbg

After that yade can be easily started:
yade-stable

"Welcome to Yade 0.60.3+2573+3~natty1, from 2011-10-13..."

Where 0.60.3 is the version of yade [1].
Updates will be downloaded automatically each time, when you update your whole system.
