Unfortunately most distributions do not have the resources to run full QA on the latest version of all software packages every time a new version of the software is released. As any seasoned SysAdmin will tell you, stability comes first. Upgrade for the sake of upgrade is generally not a good approach. Of course, companies like Microsoft or Sun would have you upgrade every time they manage to make their binaries 50% larger.
