The statement is a bit vague but generally not false.
Debian/stable is supposed to only receive security updates and important
bugfixes so that version might become outdated over time.
I'm going to provide a backported packages for stable users on
backports.org, but this still needs to be done.
testing and unstable should contain a more or less up-to-date version
but this again depends on manpower to ensure a properly tested
package. Perhaps it's a good idea to link the package page so that
people can judge whether that version is sufficient? (And if not, bug
reports are of course welcome :)

This might become difficult since everybody uses a different setup, but
something like a an example script that can easily be adjusted sounds
like a good idea.
