    how to get latest version of emacs

    Hi,
    I have Ubuntu 10.10. The software package that is available in the Software Center and Synaptic is 23.1 (which I installed), but I'd like to install the latest release (23.3). What's the best way to go? I know that you're supposed to try to find a deb package if possible, but there's only tar.gz files on the official GNU site. I found this site:

    http://ir.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/...ain/e/emacs23/

    which seems to have the deb package for 23.3, but I don't know anything about this site and if I can trust it.

    I found version 23.2 here:

    http://packages.debian.org/stable/editors/

    though I'd still prefer the latest version. But again, I don't know this site either.

    What's the best for me to get 23.3 where it will just work and I don't start getting dependency errors?

    Thank you
