it looks like what you need is a "backport" of 2.40.0-1 to Jessie
(https://backports.debian.org/). Perhaps you can first ask to the package
maintainer if he would like to prepare one and if not, please do not
hesitate to ask here. If you are familiar with Debian packaging, you
are also welcome to prepare a backport yourself and ask for sponsorship
Note also that version 2.38.0-1 will always be available from our "snaphot"
archive. Since it is a frozen snapshot, there is no support for it (which
means no correction of security bugs), but provided that you understand the
issues with installing unsupported packages, it still may be useful for your
I hope it helps.
