This question already has an answer here:
Why is it that many packages in
apt-get are outdated? For example, I would like to get the latest implementation of the clojure programming language onto my machine. However, running the command
apt-cache search clojure I get the following:
clojure - a Lisp dialect for the JVM clojure-contrib - user contributed set of libraries for clojure clojure1.2 - Lisp dialect for the JVM clojure1.3 - Lisp dialect for the JVM leiningen - simple build system for Clojure libclojure-maven-plugin-java - Clojure plugin for Maven libclucy-clojure - Clojure interface to the Lucene search engine libjava-jdbc-clojure - Clojure interface to sql databases via jdbc librobert-hooke-clojure - Function wrapper library for Clojure libtools-logging-clojure - Logging macros for Clojure
All the clojure implementations are old (
clojure is version 1.1). The newest release of the clojure programming language is 1.5.
Why is it that packages are not up to date? Do I need to reconfigure my apt-get program?
