Why would you assume that? Stable distros, like Debian and CentOS,
don't update to the latest featureset either.

But I am genuinely curious, disregarding the whole KDE mess: Other
than Open Office which distro-supplied packages are used in enterprise
environments where the latest and greatest is necessary? What features
or applications do you feel are missing in the older versions?

To answer my own question: annotations in Evince are a case.
