I've installed linux lite on my netbook and everything is running smoothly.
I installed blender through the package manager and updated the system.
Though the latest blender release is 2.69, the one downloaded (an listed in the debian repositories) is 2.63a - http://packages.debian.org/stable/graphics/blender
Why is that? In the blender site that version is listed from April 2012 - http://wiki.blender.org/index.php/Dev:Ref/Release_Notes/2.63a/log
Shouldn't I expect the latest updates from tis reps? I know I can't demand much but are there any other 'safe' reps I can pull from?
I don't mind creating the .deb file, and even posting on a rep, I'm just interested in understanding the criteria used here...
Thanks in advance.
