actually, every Ubuntu's repositories doesn't always provide new softwares in their server. Because Canonical retests and evaluates all new softwares versions that will enter into repos for ensuring the softwares is 100% compatible with Ubuntu versions.

If you want to get the latest versions, you could download from official website software distributor. but it doens't guarantee compatible completely.
