Although it is definitely off-topic, I'm with degski on this one.
Shipping with distros is not a major concern, and distros that require
an older version can use that as well as the most recent.
Doing otherwise maintains status quo which leads to code bloat and
buildup of less-efficient code for compatibility's sake.
