Alioth KDE repositories "outdated?"


Hi all, I originally got KDE 3.5 from the Alioth Debian repositories so I could get it sooner. But now that it's hit the official Debian package lists, it appears that I'm running a slightly older version than what is in there. Is the Alioth version really older than the Debian version, or what? I may as well switch back to Debian sources if that is the case!

You got it switch to the Debian sources as I doubt the Alioth packages will ever be updated again.
