I have to say i'm an total linux n00b, but i can't figure out why only 2.52 is downloaded when using the ''apt-get install transmission-daemon'' command.
I expect that is because that is the version that Debian have currently accepted into the Wheezy release (as Raspbian is based on Wheezy). The alternative might be because there have been problems building a later version for the Pi so an earlier version has been used until this can be resolved.
It is not at all unusual in the Linux world for individual packages to be quite a few releases ahead of the versions that have been accepted into distributions. The (possibly optimistic) assumption is that if users want the latest version they can always download the source and build it for themselves
