Excellent point! I never knew they provided these repos...

Either way, the version jump is too large to demand an automatic update, so the next natural step would be a security update, which is supposed to be supported by 12.04[1] and 14.04.

These usually enter the stream as patches, so it is likely that nobody has submitted a patch to fix these holes.

I live in a third-world country.

Talk of high speed internet for education, medical applications and small business empowerment is all very noble.

But all I read in the news about your first-world high speed 'ternet is how you complain about streaming TV restrictions.

The real world is not so pragmatic.

If it wasn't for Newton, we wouldn't have to eat bruised apples.
