The upstream author uses the rolling release. Current version
2:2.004-1 in squeeze is "unstable". 2:2.011-1 is called "sign of ASDF
2 becoming mature" by the author .
Since cl-asdf packaging is adopted by upstream, many bugs are reported
to upstream instead of debbugs. So they are not listed in changelog.
Version 2:2.011-1 removes the circular dependency with
common-lisp-controller. This closes 591054.
It also fixes an important bug . In a lisp implementation which
has cl-asdf 2:2.004-1 loaded, if user attempts to load a new upstream
version of cl-asdf < 2.010, the implementation will raise an error.

Do you mean it must be 1.0? But common-lisp-controller/7.4+nmu1 in
squeeze is 3.0 (native). Is 3.0 (native) different from 3.0 (quilt)?
