Out of date packages are easily brought up to date via the Arch Build System (ABS), or a simple edit of the PKGBUILD from the AUR.
Also, I would not judge pacman by its 3rd party GUIs. pacman is simply one of THE best binary package managers out there, both in simplicity, dependency resolution and speed.
