[ESS] Version currently available in ELPA?

Interestingly M-x ess-version gets me:
"[No match]" (immediately after the "ess-version" in the minibuffer)
I'm using stock Emacs on Debian squeeze ("23.2+1.7+squeeze" according to Synaptic) and also the stock ESS (says "5.11-1")
Am I way behind the cutting edge with ESS then? I suspect I am. What is the easiest way for me to stay nearer the edge if not right on the github (or whatever) bleeding edge ... or is that a safe place to be?
TIA and thanks to all who make ESS so good and contribute so generously and politely here: wonderful list.
