  rsync 14.04 LTS still contains long term buggy version

Status in rsync package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Full upgraded 14.04 LTS reports rsync version 3.1.0

  # lsb_release -rd
  Description:	Ubuntu 14.04.4 LTS
  Release:	14.04

  # rsync -V
  rsync: -V: unknown option
  rsync error: syntax or usage error (code 1) at main.c(1572) [client=3.1.0]

  rsync has had a -z compression bug for many-many years (since around
  2005) and apparently 3.1.1 finally fixes this bug

  3.1.1 has been released for over 1.5 years but still isn't in 14.04 LTS
