Psi+ is a cross-platform powerful Jabber client. I'm on 12.04 LTS. The psi-plus version in the repos is from 2011, which is much too old. See below:

$ apt-cache policy psi-plus
  Installed: (none)
  Candidate: 0.15~svn3910-2
  Version table:
     0.15~svn3910-2 0
        500 http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ precise/universe amd64 Packages

I want the latest version. What is the best way to install it so that I can keep it up to date (along with any plugins too)?

I don't see a Ubuntu or Debian version here: http://sourceforge.net/projects/psiplus/files/

I am OK with using git clone if there is a simple way to get the "complete" package (i.e., just clone one URL).
