Are you running with pinning and both stable and testing/unstable in
your sources.list?  If so you may have some packages still following
something newer than stable.  apt-showversions can show what isn't
currently using the version from stable.

What are you using as your source.list?

I certainly haven't seen any major updates in the last few weeks (I
think I saw the first security update on i386 a couple of days ago.)
