If you want to have important for you packages up-to-date you need to
compile MPM and use it or do it manually (MPM sometimes does not know
packages; so manual job is unavoidable)
1) Get it and decompress.
2) Decide if you want to install it: in texmf.local (whenever it is -
depends on distribution)
3) In this directory (2) should be tex/latex/beamer subdirectory; if
it is not there create it. Move there all the subdirectories of the
downloaded directory with exception of doc and examples, replacing all
4) In this directory (2) should be tex/latex/beamer subdirectory; if
it is not there create it. Move there content of doc subdirectory of
the downloaded directory (and examples and different README and TODO
files if you wish);
5) Run sudo texhash (not needed if you put your stuff to
~/Library/texmf but does not hurt anyway);
