The Debian philosophy is not make any version upgrades in stable 
distribution. Only security ones. This way the stability and safe 
upgrading is achieved. The testing version is the place where the 
upgrades happens. It's possible to mix stable and testing or there are 
the backports, if anyone needs recent version then there is in stable.
