Backport the unstable version to stable.

He doesn't mean install the unstable version to stable, he means compile the unstable version on stable. You can read more here: https://wiki.debian.org/SimpleBackportCreation. I've been able to do this for a few simple packages in the past, but the difficulty goes up with larger amount of dependencies.

How to backport amule from sid to stable:
Easier said than done but I've described a very simple way of backporting amule at viewtopic.php?f=30&t=117558#p553968 which I wrote last year when "jessie" was still testing and of course I recommend you also consider the method detailed by stevepusser in that topic at viewtopic.php?f=30&t=117558#p554365.
Backporting amule results in numerous packages being installed, but although this will not affect jessie's stability, it might not be a bad idea to do it in a build environment - like for example virtual box - rather than on your main system:
Here are the steps I used again:
Code: Select all
# echo "deb-src http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian unstable main" >> /etc/apt/sources.list && apt-get update

Or, if you prefer, edit /etc/apt/sources.list directly to include that line.
Code: Select all
# apt-get install build-essential
# apt-get build-dep amule
# exit

Continue in /home:
Code: Select all
$ mkdir amule && cd amule
$ user@jessie:~/amule$ apt-get --build source amule

Now the ls command will show the amule debs, which you may now install whichever way you prefer; for example, use the following dpkg command to install multiple debs from the working directory thus:
Code: Select all
# dpkg -i *deb

You'll likely need:
Code: Select all
# apt-get install -f

Backported.
