a very old version (0.7.9) of PSPP, the statistical software, is present in the ubuntu 14.04 repository. the present stable version is 0.8.3 (released on 25th April, 2014); the earlier version is 0.8.2 (released on 14th January 2014).
as the feature freeze date for trusty was on 20th February, 2014, should it at least not include 0.8.2 version of PSPP instead of 0.7.9 in the repository?
why does the present long term stable release of ubuntu contain such an old version of the software?
any idea about this will be appreciated.
PS: i have sent this question to the ubuntu users mailing list as well.
