Either, depending on your choice.
There is a good "sticky" thread on apt-pinning over on the CrunchBang forums. I highly recommend you give it a thorough read if you are considering mixing "experimental" software into your system.
Or simply use a distribution such as Arch or Ubuntu that is marketed toward users who prefer newer software over a distribution based on Debian which values older, well-tested software.
