Looks like 7.2-1 is the latest version, for hurd we have 7.2-1+b1 built
on 12 Oct 2010. This version has a problem though, see bug #579834 from
30 April 2010 containing a patch from 27 Nov 2009 and reported by Thomas
Schwinge on 10 May 2010. (Patch tag added by yourself on 21 Aug 2010).
However this patch does not seem to be applied by the DM yet.

Why are these packages important? 
squid: The list of rdepends is not especially long.
openjdk-6: This package might be more interesting.

Can only find ghc6. Why is Haskell support of large interest?

Seems to be up to date: On sid version 4.4+1 is available for all
architectures (no gnat for experimental)
