So far this has always been an issue for me. I am using Oracle Linux,
which is a fork of RHEL.
The evolution version shipped with my distribution had some serious
gtk-related issues, so I tried to backport the latest-possible
evolution version.
I ended up with evolution 3.20, which is still fairly old.

Here's some examples of related package versions on my box:


I would not mind backporting some referenced libraries, build tools
etc., but dependencies of the newer evolution version went deep into
gnome, so that I would have had to use entirely my own gnome
installation which I did not want (since this usually creates lots of
issues and conflicts with other packages).

I usually use the .src.rpm files for Fedora that I get on
as a basis, and I may have to adapt this and that. Maybe the
dependencies listed there are not what is actually really needed?

I would really like to have an up-to-date evolution version, but so
far this has been pretty much out of reach for me.
