You know what they say in Barcelona: If you ever so
slightly considered taking a psychedelic drug - you
are thinking, "well, maybe" - then you should do it :)

I hope and think Gnus isn't stagnating. Gnus is part
of Emacs (it says "Version: 5.13" in gnus.el) so you
should get updates automagically with the next version
of Emacs.

What gnus.el version do you have? You can also echo
the `gnus-version' variable.

By the way, this is your second question about getting
the latest stuff in unorthodox ways. And you even use
Emacs 25.0 (I have 24.4). You are not neurotic about
this, now? :)
