In general Ubuntu does _NOT_ update packages in released versions of the distro.
Exxceptions are made for security issues and for very nasty bugs. Updating a package
just to get a new version pretty much never happens. This is because:

* it takes man power away from the current development release
* the risk of regressions

If you really want the new version anyway, you can always install it
manually or try to see if someone packaged it at getdeb or similar.

I checked in jaunty now and it seems that the current jaunty version
of widelands is 1:12-3 :(

Hopefully someone will package v13 before jaunty at least.
