If you want the very latest software without compiling it yourself,
you will have to upgrade to the unstable distribution nicknamed `sid'.
However, I wouldn't recommend this, since the name `unstable' was
chosen for a reason, and a very good one indeed.

Debian also provides methods for compiling your own packages from
source.  Simply add deb-src lines to your /etc/apt/sources.list, for

   deb-src http://ftp.de.debian.org/debian sid main contrib non-free

and use `apt-get build-dep <package>; apt-get -b source <package>' to
build your own .debs of whatever package you desire.
