No, not yet. Experimentation with 3.7 back when it came out revealed
that it was going to be quite hard work to get the new PAM code working
acceptably for Debian, and the new PAM code is a significant change that
affects a number of other packages. The plan is to ship sarge with
security-patched 3.6.1p2.
