Debian users like all other Linux users can download a tarball and go 
./configure make make install

This gives you maximum choice of versions, at the cost of violating 
the Debian packaging protocols.  I use Slackware, but when I need a 
new or older version of some program my first stop is NOT the 
Slackware site.  There are more/better choices elsewhere.
