Where did you heard that????

Some source would be the gnome site. I know how tar.gz files are a hassle to compile, but you could make a deb yourself after compiling the source and even make it public (if possible).

That one works? I tried it but whenever I apt-get update'd I'd get "Ign" next to that particular source which I assume means "ignore." What am I doing worng?

That's the way Debian works, never release anything new into "unstable" (which is a joke) until about a month after anyone else

It was a long process. The work-a-round that I did was to make a backup of sources.list(sources.list.old) then just have the repository link in sources.list.

apt-get update
apt-get gnome-session
etc...

Then copy back sources.list.old back to sources.list and do apt-get update.
A lot of work. It took about 45 minutes for me. You may want to wait? it is up to you.

Well I tried that, I still got "Ign" on the source (what does that mean anyway?) when I apt-get update'd but when I tried apt-get install'ing gnome-session sure enough, it said version 2.4.0. So then I tried dist-upgrade and sure enough, every major GNOME package looked as though it was going to be upgraded. I might try the complete upgrade a bit later.
