Question about devuan

Hi, I'm a devuan user for a few months, the system is great, and I have it installed on two laptops, my question is the following, the current stable version, has packages from 3 years ago? It really is so important to have the last version in everything? or you can work perfectly well.
I ask, because many people give great importance to the versions.

Thanks, and good work.

Re: Question about devuan

Yes, the current stable version is based on debian jessie, which is around three years old.

Whether or not you need the latest version of something depends on your use case. Some people need the newest version of something, because that's the only version that does what they need it to do, or maybe they need the latest kernel for their new hardware. And some people are still on debian wheezy, which is five or six years old.
