all the distributions i know of, carry the current stable version (1.3.5 is not a stable version and not even the current 
unstable version nor the current development version...).

and, for the last time, if you want to use linux, please learn how it works.

you never have to download any binary from any website for your linux 
system. ever.

if you're doing this, you are going to break your system.

this is the rule. once you will have learnt this, we can talk about 
exceptions to it.

i suggest you three steps:
- first learn what a repository is.
- then learn how to add repositories for trusted programs.
- finally learn how to compile programs yourself.

in that order.

once you know what you are talking about, me may discuss how to improve 
the linux' packaging system further...

have fun
