Run Evolution from the command line and you may get some output that

Many readers will suggest that I get a new-er edition of EVO.
I'd love to.  

3.2.x is still a current version, so no, people aren't going to tell you

applied to the 3.2.x tree, and in that case it may be suggested to you
that upgrading would solve your problems.
