Why isn't Ubuntu using the latest versions of some applications?

What's the reason that the available version of "miro" is only 3.5.1 in Ubuntu 11.10?

The latest version of miro is 4.0.3, and there is still a ppa available with the latest version.

But why isn't miro available in the official repository?

That's just the way that the Ubuntu Packages work, for most applications they don't have the latest versions. Using PPA's are probably the best way to circumvent this...

yes, but there is already the new version in the testing branch of debian: packages.debian.org/… why not in the current branch of Ubuntu 11.10 –  Bernd Sep 5 '11 at 20:28
