My version of 7-Zip

The version of my 7-Zip on my Ubuntu is 16.02. However, this is not the newest version by far. Calling sudo apt-get update or sudo apt-get upgrade doesn't help. Is it just that the 7-Zip package is not maintained, or can I have up-to-date 7-Zip on my system?

EDIT: My version of Ubuntu is 18.10


If you check on https://sourceforge.net/projects/p7zip/files/p7zip/, you can see the latest version available is 16.02, this also true per Disco (19.04) releases.

The 'newest' version however, only available in Windows machine.

So it appear the developer of 7-Zip hasn't released latest version for Ubuntu yet, and considering it's been 3 years already, I don't think that will the case.
