Dear Gianfranco,

Allegro 5.2 got released about 2 weeks back. Precisely on 2016-04-01 .
You can wget http://download.gna.org/allegro/allegro/5.2.0/allegro-5.2.0.tar.gz

As shared the changelog of 5.2 can be seen at

What you have quoted is the state of affairs in 2013. What I have
shared is as of date.

Hope that clears any confusion that I may have done.

Btw I did send a mail to control@bugs.debian.org with the following content -

retitle 704141 liballegro5.0:upstream has released 5.2 please
update/upgrade in archive.
thank you

Hopefully that fixed it.
