I found the new version of texmacs here:

I tried adding the relevant entries into /etc/apt/sources.list and updated apt. 
It crapped out, something about `keys'. I had no clue what the problem was so I 
backed off.

If a packages is not available, I compile from source and install into my home 
directory. I have full control over the installation.

I leave Ubuntu's package system alone. If it gets hosed (which I've done in the 
past) I end up re-installing Ubuntu. And that's just unacceptable.

You can download the .deb package from the URL above (there is a texmacs-common 
package too) and install it manually but, once again, you are circumventing 
Ubuntu's package management system.

There is another way, there always is! I run the latest bleeding edge texmacs. 
I grab it through svn, compile it and install it in $HOME. This is a rather 
involved process which is mostly for developers.

Maybe one of the package maintainers will suggest something.
