I am simply talking about the versions of the packages in gNewSense's  
repositories: GNOME 2.30, Firefox 3.5, LibreOffice 3.2, etc. If you want to  
know about other applications, look at their versions in Debian stable:  
https://packages.debian.org/stable/

Installing software not in the repository can quickly become a dependency  
hell. Not to talk about the hassle of finding the packages in the first  
place. Go for the packages in Debian testing if you really want to try  
gNewSense: https://www.debian.org/distrib/packages

But, again, if you want a light GNU/Linux system where recent applications  
are easily available, Trisquel Mini 7 is a way better option than gNewSense  
3.1 (w.r.t. both criteria) : http://devel.trisquel.info/makeiso/iso/
