I'm the balsa maintainer; I have packaged 0.8, the reason I haven't
uploaded it yet is that Martin Schulze made some important patches to
the last version which was included in Debian (thanks Joey) and I
haven't yet found time to check if they were all folded upstream, or
whether some must be re-folded.

I won't have time to do this until my exams finish (13th), either.  If
someone wants to NMU the new version that's fine, but (a) please
contact me first and (b) please investigate which of Joey's changes
need applying to the new version.
