Obviously it's not that smooth as upgrading the package –  Andrew Smith Jun 26 '12 at 11:19

If you need to install a more recent version of a package that is not available in the repositories, you need to find/create the suitable .deb file(s). Alternatively, you can always download the source code from the official website and build it yourself.
