The OpenMPI package in Ubuntu is copied unchanged from Debian.  If you
believe a newer version of OpenMPI should be shipped in Ubuntu, it's best to
speak first with the Debian maintainers; I've cc:ed them on this reply.

I see that a new version of OpenMPI was already requested in the Debian BTS:
<>.  There has been
discussion there about the delays in updating to the new upstream version;
perhaps you can lend some help to the maintainers in getting this update
