    Will the Screenlets in Hardy's repos ever be updated?

    Currently it's at 0.0.12 while the current version of Screenlets is 0.1.2 (I think).

    Whise has made an amazing piece of software, and it's great to have it in the repos now, but when will we get the latest and greatest?

    Never. If they would update software after the feature freeze, there wouldn't be any need for different Ubuntu versions in the first place.

    If you want to have always the latest software available, you have to use a rolling release distro like gentoo or arch.

    Or you compile it yourself (or wait for somebody else to do it for you), of course.
