What you have likely *are* the latest versions in Woody.  You should
read about the difference among the various Debian package release
lines: <URL:http://www.debian.org/releases/>.  The upshot is that
Debian users generally have to choose between having a system that is
very low maintenance ("stable") or a system that has all the latest
version of everything ("unstable").  If you want to generally follow
the "stable" release, but have a few very updated packages, then you
have other options (e.g., backports.org).
