if you use distribution packages you are supposed to wait for a update 
from the distribution or learn to proper package at your own

i heard that's not that easy as on Redhat systems because you don't have 
everything in a .src.rpm and just need to replace the tarball after 
unpack the src.rpm and edit the version in the spec file but again:

it's up to your distribution - whatever "pull-lp-source" does the Ubuntu 
package is pretty sure full of patches and so on

so again: build your own package diretcly from the tarball or wait as 
others do for upgrades over the regular channels of your OS, otherwise 
you will end here again sooner or later asking how to fix the fallout 
you produce with doing something you are not firm with
