What platform?

TL doesn't do updates.  For the texmf trees you can use the miktex
package manager, but
for binaries you have to compile the sources.  If you are on a
mainstream *x, compiling
should be straightforward (I had no problems on Fedora Core 5), but
the install requires manual copying the results of the compile over to
the TL tree.

For Win32, check whether Akira Kakuto has the new version in w32tex.
