I've just uploaded newt 0.50-2 to erlangen, and submitted a bug against
ftp.debian.org to remove newt0.30{,-dev} from the archives. The new
packages are libnewt0 and libnewt-dev. 0.50-1 conflicts/replaces
newt0.30-dev, 0.50-2 also conflicts/replaces newt0.25-dev 

dbootstrap may be recompiled using the new version of newt, and
boot-floppies control file modified to show the new dependencies.
(Currently no other package on potato depends on newt).
