Upon starting POL, the auto refresh displays a popup that reports "An updated version of PlayOnLinux is available (4.2.12), OK" After clicking the OK button, POL runs normally. BUT after I do 
    sudo apt-get update &
    sudo apt-get install playonlinux

it reports I already have the newest version 4.2.11. What can I do to fix this? Currently, it's more of a nuisance than anything else, as POL works normally after I click the OK button.

Here's the Bug report filed:

I do not think there are any "visible" changes in such a minor version. You should try POL 5, if you really want the latest development version ->
