0.2.1.x is currently the stable branch, and 0.2.2.x is currently the
development branch. You can distinguish because has a tag
("-beta") at the end.

Quoting from https://torproject.org/download/download :
"There are two versions of each package, a stable and alpha
release. Stable packages are released when we believe the features and
code will not change for many months. Alpha or unstable packages are
released so you can help us test new features and bugfixes. Even though
they have a higher version number than the stable versions listed above,
there is a much higher chance of serious reliability and security bugs
in these downloads. Please be prepared to report bugs."

You can switch to the development branch for your debs:
