no, not officially. but Michael Gebetsroither <michael.geb@gmx.at>
provides cryptsetup-luks debs at his own repositority here:

unfortunately it's the same for me. i still use cryptsetup from wesley

i think the best person to contact is Michael Gebetsroither. you can
reach him at michael.geb@gmx.at. i had some conversation about his
