The version you have is fine, and I would not recommend getting the one from XBMCHub. There's nothing wrong with the one you have. They are the same thing other than a maintenance plugin provided by XBMCHub.
It's a long story, some plugin developers branched away from XBMCHub because they included ads in their plugins. XBMC threw a hissy fit and kicked them out because they don't support ads. XBMCHub encourages users to use their StartFresh feature to install a fresh version of XBMC that is guaranteed not to include any plugins from these developers that they no longer support. That's the only reason you're encouraged to install "Their" version.
