In Debian (as in many Distributions), there are a number of sources,
primarily the stable, unstable and testing. The default is stable,
which will only give you a frozen snapshot of packages from a certain
point in time. Unstable/testing may give you newer versions. However,
for the latest, you may have to build your own.
This is more simple than it sounds. You generally should, as a rule,
read the installation documents on the website, and then it is
normally a case of downloading the source, unzipping it, and then:
Generally, people stick with the distro version if they want something
solid that has had time and been tested in the field. Things that are
the latest and greatest are known as the cutting edge because you may
get stung trying to use them.
