Concerning Debian: It depends also on the *interest* of
the Debian maintainers to get it in. And this interest
was pretty low over the last years.
Currently they are still fixing bugs in a totally outdated
5.0 version. Most/all/even more of these bugs are fixed
in 5.3/5.4. The Debian maintainers have been notified regularly.
But everybody has the liberty to choose how to waste his/her
Please complain to them. From our side things are done (at
least up to 5.4).
