There are various repos labeled "stable" that will help keep things
current with updated releases, but they aren't always tested against each
other (that's the reason the default update repo doesn't generally
upgrade from, say, KDE 4.9 to KDE 4.10. Too many dependencies get
broken).

You could subscribe to the factory repository - at that point, you're not
12.3 any more, you're "13.1 pre-release", but factory is going to be the
bleeding edge of development.
