Comment 40 for bug 267376

So much for the "latest and greatest". It's a shame that such a significant upgrade won't make it to the final release. And a marketing gaffe, too. We've already lost A LOT due to the lack of new theme despite the promises. People ask me what's so exciting about Intrepid and I don't really know what to tell them anymore.
I wouldn't mind if at least the backports repository actually had the latest software. Waiting 6 more months is daunting to say the least.
Well, the good thing is there will always be PPAs to turn to for the a little bit more advanced users.

So.. if you want Ubuntu to include the latest version of your software, cripple security updates for older versions. You'll be much more likely to get an exception next time. :)
