well....you idea of what should be in the repos and openSUSE's idea are
two different things, read this:

openSUSE:Maintenance policy - openSUSE

on the whole it says we fix bugs and security problem, we don't just run
in the latest version because it is available.....now, i think there are
other distros which pander to the
must-have-the-newest-of-everything.....but, that is not openSUSE..
but it also says
some cases it might be sensible to use the a new upstream version instead of applying a patch.
and I think it is the case

I don't need the newest, I need a working version, I subscribed the maintenance mailing list, may be I can better understand policy and how to ask to upgrade :-) many thanks :-))
