Like the rest of Base, dpkg has been in a state of freeze for some time. Recent uploads to unstable have been largely to update translations and make sure features that need to be in stable are. In case of critical bugs, the only uploads to unstable until sarge is released will be proposed updates for testing. However, if you like a little excitement, danger and risk to your package management you might want to use the 1.13.x releases that will be uploaded to experimental, starting with 1.13.0 today. Right now the only major changes are to the source package, bringing it into a useful shape to be maintained and a few minor bug fixes that got swept along with it. This branch will hopefully see fairly rapid releases incorporating both bug fixes and new development/features. It may be slightly more unstable than you may be used to. Those interested in following dpkg development may wish to read the wiki at http://www.dpkg.org/ and/or join the firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list.
