To get the *latest* compatible version of any application, look in the 
following places in the following order:
1. The official (main) and (universe, multiverse) repositories.  You can usually 
count on these working.
2. "-backports" repositories
3. A launchpad.net PPA.  Sometimes a user will package a cutting edge version 
for Ubuntu and place it in a PPA repository.
4. A repository usually hosted by the application's development team, on a 
non-ubuntu server
5. A deb available from the app web site, not hosted on a repository, but 
packaged to work either with Ubuntu or distro-independent.

Let Google be your registrar for finding courses on this and any topic.
