This discussion really should be in -dev and not -support. However, I'll answer
The idea of a 'stable' book is to provide, umm, stability. We already tell you
and other readers how to handle url problems. If you want newer packages, use
the -dev book. In this way we give the best of both worlds -- a stable, tested
environment and a cutting edge book with the latest packages.
