"Long term support" is for "long term support". You seem not to
understand that the policy of an Ubuntu LTS is not to risk breakage.
For a LTS there only will be upgrades, if there are really good reasons
to upgrade, e.g. for important security reasons. I'm using Arch Linux,
a rolling release, but even a rolling release provides LTS packages, at
least for linux (the kernel). IOW "long term support" means "no
upgrades unless there really, really is the need to upgrade, for a
really, really important reason". The upgrade you wich to get for
Evolution is not going to happen, because it would be the absolutely
opposite of a "long term support" to do this.

If you chose a distro, you need to care about the policy of the distro,
if you chose a release model distro, then you need to care about the
policy of the releases. If "long term support" doesn't fit to your
needs, then you need to chose a different release or perhaps a
different distro.
