For Ubuntu 14.04 LTS (Trusty), which is the most recent Ubuntu LTS
release, virt-manager is stuck at 0.9.5 in the official Ubuntu

But you can upgrade to 1.1.0 on Trusty using ppa:jacob/virtualisation,
which maintained by Jacob Zimmermann.   See

And even for the forthcoming Ubuntu 15.10 (Wily), which isn't an LTS
release, virt-manager is stuck at 1.0.1 in the official Ubuntu

But you can upgrade to 1.2.1 on Wily using ppa:jacob/virtualisation.
See https://launchpad.net/~jacob/+archive/ubuntu/virtualisation?field.series_filter=wily
