Remember Gol D. Roger and his legendary treasure "One Piece" ?! :D ..
Yeah, I found the One Piece. But, that's not means "I created it!" or the first one who found it. But, I think that I'm the first one who said : "I left everything I own in One Piece! " in this case!!.
Here what I mean:
If very interested in update your softwares to the latest versions like me, you must to know about launchpad.net and its PPAs!.
there is houndeds of software PPAs you can keep your Ubuntu up-to-date with it.
but sometime founding this PPAs is difficult! and add it with GPG is much more harder!.. You must to do it manually!!
Now you don't!.. Just download this file: ppa-pkg_1.0_all.deb and install it then go to Synaptic and update the repositories by clicking "Reload" icon. you may search about "ppa" in Synaptic to install some/all of the PPAs
see this screen-cast: Add all Launchpad.net PPAs to you Ubuntu with ppa-pkg
