I'm looking to upgrade MailScanner and Spamassassin on a Debian 3.1, it was installed by someone else and they no longer work here.  So this has landed in my lap, so pardon my lack of the correct term.
I've noticed that using apt-get does not upgrade to the latest version for SA or MS.
Is this done primary through compiling tar files or Perl installation?

mail:/etc/MailScanner# sa-learn --version
SpamAssassin version 3.0.3
