The maintainer decides when a package is updated and to what version. A repository could potentially
provide multiple versions of a package, but usually doesn't due to the maintenance overhead.
You can always open a ticket with a request for an update [0], but maintainers of packages
for enterprise distributions are usually not too keen on updating to the latest and greatest
just for new features, since new features usually also means new bugs. I think I'll go and
suggest an update from 1.0.2 to at least 1.0.3 though, since that release contains quite a
few bug fixes.
