You already have seen what Simon replied, so getting the new package into 
the repositories is not so easy.

Coincidentially, I filed a ITP (intend-to-package) bug [1] precisely with 
Summoning Wars game that you refer, that's why I intended to take care of 
Ogre.  I also poked a couple of times to the CEGUI maintainer, but he didn't 
update CEGUI yet.

Maybe it would be easier to port the game to OpenSceneGraph, at least those 
libraries are up to date in Debian :b

Don't know anything about this or how this could help you.
