The official way:

The unofficial way requires grovelling, connections and/or a bribe.

Packages are moved to stable every 3 months.  The actual lag depends on
the time of year but don't get too excited about KDE 3.5 yet because
it's not in unstable.  You could see KDE 3.5 in stable in 3 1/2 weeks
- or maybe not if it's not in unstable soon or not considered stable.
