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 email@example.com with the following content -
retitle 704141 liballegro5.0:upstream has released 5.2 please
update/upgrade in archive.
Hopefully that fixed it.
