If upstream releases a new stable version, then assume it's a _stable_ version and thus _immediately_ include it as an update to the stable distribution.
The reason we run Debian Stable on a large number of servers is precisely because Debian does not make such assumptions.
That sort of thing may be OK for a desktop distribution, but when running customer critical applications on a server in a data centre, stability and security are far more important than "the latest version".
