This is a long-term support distribution.
Don't expect those to have actual tip versions of any SW package!
They rely on stabe versions that don't have the latest features
but only those very well tested.


The semver 1.7 is not an unstable package. Its that their reason for no updates?

I don't know their exact update policy, but generally the Long-Term support distros tend to have rather old packages for a lot of sw. I think they update only stuff for which security problems were fixed and everything that depends on those, and that's it.
