Dear Jonas,

If others like Milan did not manage to contact the package's maintainer, maybe
you can go ahead an take over the package now ? By the way, Ubuntu has already
upgraded to the latest upstream version since almost a year now, and there are
no bugs related to this upgrade, so despite the freeze is soon it may be safe
to upgrade the Debian package as well.

Have a nice day,
